The Fayette Regional Humane Society (FRHS) responded to an apartment in Washington CH on Wednesday after animals were allegedly abandoned inside.
A humanitarian worker found and removed two cats and seven guinea pigs – two guinea pigs were dead. No food or water was found for the animals to eat or drink.
The cats were transported to the FRHS clinic where they were evaluated and mild dehydration was noted. The five live guinea pigs were taken to MedVet for examination and treatment due to their species type.
Fayette County Public Health (FCPH) has been asked to do an inspection due to the conditions inside the apartment. It was determined by the FCPH that the accommodation was unsuitable for human habitation and condemned it.
Aid workers are actively looking for the responsible person. The case is still under investigation.
FRHS spent just over $1,000 between the medical bill and the investigation of this case. If anyone would like to donate to animal rescue and recovery, please go online to fayetteregionalhumane.org or mail it to Fayette Regional Humane Society, 153 S. Main St., Ste. 3, Washington Courthouse, OH 43160.
