The Washington Animal Rescue League has welcomed 18 new dogs, after rescuing them from unsafe conditions in Mississippi.

They are part of a larger group of 108 dogs rescued late last year by the Humane Society near Macon, Mississippi. The canines were found living in a hoarding situation with unsanitary conditions, filthy outdoor pens and little protection from the elements.

“These animals are exactly the kind of animals that the League is set up to help,” WARL President and CEO Dr. Gary Weitzman said in a statement. “We’re very happy to be able to take these dogs in and work to find them permanent homes.”

The dogs range in age from two weeks to eight years and are currently receiving medical care from the rescue league. They will be put up for adoption after they have been treated and evaluated by WARL staff.
