LAURENS, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The Laurens County Humane Society is working to find homes for more than 120 small dogs that were taken from a home on Townsend Street by Animal Control on Tuesday morning.

Animal Control officials said deputies assisted as the dogs were removed from the home.

The dogs were all in good health but they were living in unfit conditions, officials said.

"It's not an abuse case but just an unfortunate situation, really," said humane society volunteer Pat Klus. "This was a case of an elderly woman with good intentions, but she couldn't afford to spay/neuter, and things just got out of hand."

Klus said the humane society hopes local pet lovers will quickly adopt the dogs because the Animal Control building where the animals are being kept does not have space for so many dogs.

"We took in more than 120 dogs on top of the ones that were here and we only have 28 kennels," Klus said.

Klus said anyone interested in adopting the dogs can call 864-984-6812, email laurenspets@yahoo.com, or visit the Animal Control building at 79 Mount Vernon Church Rd. between the hours of 10 a.m. and noon and 1 p.m. and 4:45 p.m. on weekdays.

The adoption fee is $45 and includes spay/neuter.

Klus said donations to help care for the dogs can be made to the Laurens County Humane Society. Click here for more information.

The Greenville Humane Society has taken in several dogs that were seized to help give them a second change at life. According to the humane society, three dogs are heartworm positive and will be placed in foster homes until they are ready for adoption.

The remaining dogs brought in will be available at the shelter, located at 305 Airport Rd. in Greenville.
