Animals found living in poor conditions in Henderson County will soon be ready for adoption

HENDERSON (WEHT) - Hundreds of animals found living in bad conditions at a Henderson County farm earlier this week will soon be up for adoption.

But, for those looking to adopt, you'll have to go through a special process to take them home.

Officials with the Humane Society of Henderson County say they're setting up a special application for people interested in adopting the animals found in the Reed area this week.

Applicants will have to describe how much land they have, what types of animals they already own, and how much help they will have raising them.

They're also checking if they have space for any potential quarantine zones for sick animals.

Home checks will also be done once the adoption is done.

"We don't want them going back in to the same kind of living conditions,” said Katie Crooks, a Henderson County Animal Control Officer. “We definitely don't want them to promote any kind of hoarding. We just want to make sure they go in a safe place. "

Humane society officials say it may be weeks before any animals are ready for adoption.
