RUSSELL TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Four of the 15 dogs rescued in early May in Geauga County are now ready for new homes.
The dogs were rescued from a severe neglect case at the house of an elderly couple.
On June 4, from noon until 2 p.m. the adoption process will begin at Rescue Village in Russell Township.
These dogs have extensive special needs. Due to their neglect, some have never been in a house or seen carpeting or a couch. Some may not know how to go up and down stairs or might not be housebroken.
Rescue Village reminds potential adopters that they need to understand the levels of care required for these dogs as well as a commitment to training to successfully integrate them into a home.
"For those willing to take that journey we are confident that ultimately they will have a loving and wonderful pet," said Hope Brustein, Executive Director.
In the event of a large turnout, a lottery system will be used. Those interested in adopting any of these dogs are encouraged to check the humane society website for daily updates at www.geaugahumane.org .
