Delaware Humane Association assists in finding many homes. The Delaware Humane Association is assisting The Humane Society of the United States by helping find temporary placement for 61 dogs from a hoarding case at Clean Slate Animal Rescue in Columbia, Kentucky, where 295 dogs and cats were found.

The animals which were evaluated and given health certificates from the attending veterinarian are looking for homes.

The 61 dogs were distributed among the DHA's partnering agencies on Thursday. The agencies include the Kent County SPCA, the Humane Society of Kent County, Talbot County Humane Society, Humane Society of Wicomico County, and the DHA.

"The agencies are prepared to give the dogs all the love, time and effort needed to recover from major medical issues including, malnutrition, parasites, saracoptic mange, flea infestations," the DHA said in a press release.

Donations are being accepted to cover the costs of caring for the dogs, and getting them ready for adoption.
