New Homes Sought For Seized Animals

Bedford County Pets Taken From Home In November

The Bedford County Animal Control is looking for new homes for dozens of pets.

Authorities last month rescued more than 40 neglected birds, cats and dogs from a Unionville home.

All but two of the animals are available for adoption online, according to the Shelbyville Times-Gazette.

Caretakers said it has been difficult to find new homes for the rescued dogs, which includes 12 coon dogs.

"Just call the shelter. We'll be more than happy to set up a time when people can visit with them, spend some time with them. Even if you can't take one home, it's a good thing to get them out of the shelter, out of the cage and take them for a walk," said Michael Gregory of the Bedford County Animal Control.

It costs $65 to adopt an animal, but the adoptee gets $50 back when the animal is spayed or neutered.
