COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County Humane Society is hoping to find forever homes for the final three dogs that were part of a group rescued from a hording situation.

“There was no electric and no air conditioning in the building they were in,” said Rachael Selders from the humane society. “It was so hot in there. We had to get them out and get them some fresh air.”

Dr. Butcher evaluated the dogs and unfortunately three had to be put down because they were so sick.

“They all lived in crates and they were full of feces,” Selders said. “We spent hours bathing them. Some of them that had white on them are cream colored because we couldn’t get the stains all off.”

The three dogs that are still looking for homes are Emilee, Natasha, and Honey. They are all good on a leash, house trained, happy, healthy and fixed.

Emilee is currently living with a foster family. She is great in the car, likes cats, and loves people.

“Her foster family has a handicapped child that she does really with,” Selders said. “Emilee is a wonderful dog.”

They are not sure of Emilee’s exact age or breed. Selders said they think she is at least 6 and possibly a boxer/hound mix.

Natasha also is a mixed breed and around 8 or 9 years old. Selders said she had lived in a crate since 2011, but is doing wonderful with her newfound freedom.

“She loves everybody,” Selders said. “She is a little leery of cars, but is getting better.”

Honey lost an ear in a dog fight, but is still full of energy and love. She is estimated to be around 7 years old.

Natasha and Honey are both being boarded at Dr. Nicely’s office and her staff works with them as much as they can.

Meet and greets can be set up with anyone interested in adopting Emilee, Natasha or Honey. Adoption applications also must be filled out.

“We don’t just let anyone adopt,” Selders said. “You have to have good vet references. These three also can’t go to homes with other dogs.”

Applications and information on adoption fees can be found online at coshoctoncohumanesociety.org. They also are available at Tractor Supply or you can call 740-575-5829.
