Nearly 50 dogs and puppies rescued from a White County, Ark., property are starting their new lives today in the Washington, D.C., area.

In July, The Humane Society of the United States assisted in the rescue and removal of 95 animals after authorities discovered them living in filth and suffering from a lack of basic care.

Many of the animals were suffering from respiratory problems as well as skin, eye, and ear conditions, but have since received thorough veterinary care.

The HSUS’s Emergency Placement Partners, including Washington Animal Rescue League, Lost Dog and Cat Rescue, SPCA of Anne Arundel County, and the Humane Society of Calvert County, are generously taking in dogs from the case to find them loving homes. All of the dogs will be available for adoption in the coming days.

Get details of the July 19 rescue.
