Kentucky officials rescued nearly 60 dogs from a home and plan to rescue even more on Saturday.
Workers at the Whitley-Knox County Humane Society say it's the biggest animal hoarding case they've ever seen. All 60 dogs were taken to the shelter. Nearly every cage is full, and workers say they'll rescue another 20 dogs from the same home Saturday.
Shelter officials say the owner of the animals was in way over his head and surrendered all the dogs.
"People think that they're helping and in turn it ends up into abuse because there's no way that anyone can take care of 60 animals on their own," said Deanna Myers.
The shelter says most of the dogs are healthy, but some are just days away from having puppies, which could put a strain on space, supplies, and food.
Several rescue groups, including one out of Chicago, have come in to help.
