No charges expected in Casey County animal rescue case

Earlier this year on local news, we reported that an organization known as the Animal Rescue Corps was involved in an operation that saved more than 40 dogs that were being held in what was described as deplorable conditions.

According to a report in the Casey County News, an investigation by the Casey County Sheriff’s Office has led to a decision not to file criminal charges in the case.

According to the report, the sheriff’s office said the renter of the home has left the state and all the dogs have been removed from the location, and all remaining issues are civil matters.

Back in January, law enforcement and rescuers from the Animal Rescue Corps converged at a home on Kentucky Highway 49 in Casey County, where 44 dogs were being held in and around a home that had partially burnt. Three dogs were found dead, two frozen outside, and most were in bad condition.

The dogs were taken to a rescue operation in Tennessee, and according to social media posts, many of them have been adopted.
