REAGAN, Tenn. (WKRN) – More than a dozen animals were rescued from “neglectful conditions” at a Henderson County home Sunday.
According to a release, seven cats and one puppy were also found dead on the property, which is located about two hours southwest of Nashville.
A total of seven dogs, eight cats and one horse were all seized by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office.
“We take animal abuse very seriously in Henderson County and we will do everything we can to protect the innocent,” Deputy Katie Carroll said.
The Animal Rescue Corps (ARC) also assisted in the rescue, now dubbed, “Operation Mistletoe.”
All of the animals will receive a thorough veterinary exam and needed vaccinations and medical treatment.
ARC will continue to provide daily care to the animals until they can be placed with shelters and rescue organizations.
Anyone who is interested in adopting or fostering any of the animals, can visit ARC’s Facebook page for more information.
