Approximately 80 dogs from Leslie County will be looking for new homes.

Homeward Bound Canine Rescue and Rehabilitation said it took in the animals from a man who had been rescuing stray dogs.

The non-profit group said the man recently underwent a back operation and is unable to care for the animals.

According to Veterinarians at the Cumberland Valley Animal Hospital, all of the dogs were well fed and in good health.

The man had also named all of the dogs.

None of the pets were spayed or neutered.

Veterinarians said a dog can produce a litter of about six puppies every six months.

They also said puppies can begin breeding about six months after they are born.

Homeward Bound said it will cost them $10,000 to care for the dogs.

The animals are being taken out of the home in groups of 20 and given to foster homes and other shelters until they can be adopted.

Homeward Bound is hosting upcoming adoption events in Richmond and Lexington.

The group will be at PetSmart in Richmond Saturday, February 22nd and Saturday, March 1st from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Homeward Bound will also host adoption events in Lexington on Saturday, March 8th and Saturday, March 15th.

The group will be at PetSmart in Hamburg on both days from noon until 7:00 p.m.
