EUGENE, Ore. -- Greenhill Humane Society helped rescue 98 dogs from Western Lane County and some of the dogs are being transferred to a better facility. Greenhill said their facility is inadequate to care for all of them.

"We have the professional staff and experience to care for these pups, but our facility is inadequate. Our kennels were built in the 1950's and some of these dogs are so small and malnourished that they're able to get out of our kennels."

Although they would like to keep these dogs locally, they are unable to. Some of the dogs will be transported to Willamette Humane Society in Salem and Oregon Humane Society in Portland.

The dogs were rescued from a home on Monday. They said the owner willingly signed over her animals after becoming overwhelmed by the number of dogs in her care.

Greenhill staff said the dogs will need to be socialized with humans and the outdoors. They will also have to undergo a medical and behavioral evaluation before being placed for adoption.
