The Woodford Humane Society is in desperate need of foster families to care for dozens of dogs and cats that were brought to the facility following an animal cruelty investigation at an area farm.

The Woodford Humane Society said on its Facebook page Monday that the dogs were in various conditions. 

The dogs that need foster homes are the animals that are emaciated and require extra love and care to recover.

The Society hopes to have photos of the animals posted online in the next few days.

People who are interested in knowing what the animals look like before the pictures are posted online, can visit the adoption center, which is open Noon-6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday and Noon-5:00 p.m., Saturday and Sunday.

The Woodford Humane Society said people who can't foster an animal, but want to help, can consider donating bleach, detergent, paper towels, 55 gallon drum liners, treats, toys, blankets and beds.

For people who would like to make a financial donation, the Society asked that they consider donating to the CHAMPS Emergency Medical Fund, which would directly fund the veterinary care that the animals from the cruelty case require.

For more information, call the Woodford Humane Society at 859-873-5491 or email: manager@woodfordhumane.org

The case at the center of the plea for help involves Cheryll Jeffers, who also goes by the name Cheryll Ford, according to Woodford County Animal Control investigators.

Sixteen dead horses, a dead donkey, numerous dead dogs, cats and chickens were found in a barn on a Woodford County farm February 25, 2013, according to investigators.

In addition to the dead animals, there were numerous horses, dogs, cats and chickens on the property.  The dogs and cats were taken to the Woodford Humane Society.

Investigators said last Friday, Jeffers was arrested and charged with animal cruelty and related charges.  She has since bonded out of the Woodford County Detention Center, according to the jail.

Investigators said Jeffers told them that viruses had killed some of the animals.

Jeffers is due in court March 18th.
