LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Kentucky Humane Society is overflowing with dogs ready for their forever homes!

After a puppy mill was shut down by the ASPCA and the Pulaski County Sheriff's Office, the shelter took in 43 dogs and 2 cats from Nancy, Kentucky. Those animals will not be ready to be adopted for at least another week, but 150 pets are currently available at KHS.

Nearly 400 homeless cats and dogs are currently being cared for at the shelter. Unfortunately, shelter space is limited in general but specifically for large dogs.

According to KHS, many people have expressed interest in adopting the puppy mill dogs, but there are lots of needy pets looking to become part of a family. Until January 26, you can adopt a larger dog for only $48!
