Please take a look at the dogs in this slideshow, and consider giving one or more a forever home.

This isn't a case where the dogs were in bad health and being neglected. Instead, the Laurens County Humane Society is working to find homes for the dogs after their elderly owner was unable to afford to spay or neuter the dogs in her care, and things got out of control.

Humane Society volunteer Pat Klus told Fox Carolina

"It's not an abuse case but just an unfortunate situation, really, This was a case of an elderly woman with good intentions, but she couldn't afford to spay/neuter, and things just got out of hand."

Laurens County Animal Control officials say Lauren's County deputies assisted as the dogs were removed from the home on Townsend Street after it was determined they were living in unfit conditions. Overall, the animals are in good health.

The Animal Control building doesn't have room to keep so many dogs, and Pat hopes people in the community will step up and adopt one of these precious dogs.

If you'd like to help the Laurens County Humane Society by adopting a dog, or making a donation, please contact them at (864)984-6812 or by email at laurenspets@yahoo.com. You may also visit the Animal Control building at 79 Mount Vernon Church Road between the hours of 10 a.m. and noon and 1 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. on weekdays.

The adoption fee is $45 and includes spay/ neuter. At this time, 28 kennels are housing the dogs already in their care, plus the more than 120 taken in on Tuesday.

Klus said donations to help care for the dogs can be made to the Laurens County Humane Society. Any help, whether by adoption or donating to their care is desperately needed.
