CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) – Thirty-four Chihuahua's are now ready for adoption after being rescued on October 11th from an abandoned home in Brown County Ohio. Today' the dogs are keeping it low key after being spayed and neutered. All 34 are up to date on shots and have a clean bill of health.

Bonnie Morrison of Tri-State County Animal Response Team or CART is one of the many volunteers that have helped these dogs return to a happy and healthy state.

"They are doing way better than when we first picked them up," said Morrison. "They were malnourished, they had skin allegories, they had ear problems, dental problems, and broken bones."

Three other organizations and volunteers have also been a major part of this recovery process.

Cathy Madewell of the United Coalition for animals non-profit spay and neuter clinic or UCAN has been around since the start. Madewell remembers how scared and timid the dogs were a month ago.

"All the dogs were barking and clawing at the sides of the kennels," said Madewell. "They were so emotionally upset."

Today during a two hour period one dog barked. Once. They certainly have come a long way after the care they have been given.

The Brown County Humane Society is also helping out along with the League for Animal Welfare.

This week the former owner released the dogs to the custody of the Brown County Humane Society and now they are all up for adoption.

The amount of work that all the agencies and each volunteer have put in is the reason why no dogs were put down and all are ready to go to a great home.

"If you have one little dog at home you know how much work that can be, so you just multiple it by that many times," said Jan Staubach of the Brown County Humane Society.

The adoption runs from 10am until 4pm at the Anderson Family Pet Center located at 6666 Clough Pike in Anderson Township.  People interested in adopting must bring a photo ID and a Veterinarian referral.
