LANCASTER, OH (WCMH) — The Fairfield Area Humane Society is asking for donations to help pay for the care of dozens of dogs who are coming in another county, and is offering reduced adoption fees on all other dogs. 

The Humane Society said on Facebook that they have taken in 22 dogs from the other county, which they did not name. They were called to help with the removal of dogs from a property. 

Fairfield Area humane agents drove to the property where the dogs were, expecting to find around 50 more animals. Instead, they found at least 120 more dogs on the property.

Humane agents brought 23 of these dogs home and made arrangements to keep bringing more dogs over in groups. Many of the dogs are small dogs. 

The FAHS is offering half off adoption fees on all dogs, excluding puppies, until they rescue the remaining dogs. The adoption fee will be $80 and includes a spay and neuter surgery, heartworm tests, vaccines, microchips, flea and worming treatment. An adoption application is also required.
