70 rescued dogs now up for adoption at Humane Society

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Dozens of dogs rescued from a life of neglect at a Salem warehouse have gone up for adoption at the Oregon Humane Society.

The Humane Society has been helping 120 abused and malnourished dogs recover since the rescue last month.

Humane Society officials said it was one of the biggest cases of animal abuse in Oregon history. Deputies arrested 24-year-old Alicia Inglish in the case.

"It was some of the worst conditions I have ever seen from the dog care perspective," said Barbara Baugnon, a spokeswoman for the Humane Society.

The 70 dogs that went up for adoption Wednesday are the healthiest of those rescued.  The adoption process began at 10 a.m. at the shelter on Northeast Columbia Boulevard.

A variety of breeds and sizes, such as dachshund mixes, Chihuahua mixes, terrier mixes, Labrador mixes and pit bulls are up for adoption.

You can view the Humane Society website to see information about each dog.
