Help Needed For More Than 400 Animals Seized Yesterday From Kentucky Property

An animal cruelty investigation resulted in the discovery of more than 400 animals yesterday on a 10-acre property in Reed, Kentucky. Tragically, an estimated 100 dead animals were found among the living in their pens.

The Humane Society of Henderson first responded to complaints of “numerous animals in inhumane living conditions, and a strong odor.

According to the local news and the sheriff’s department, which later arrived on the scene, Doil How Stogner, 73, permitted the search of his residence.

The seized animals, including chickens, ducks, geese, pigs, goats, a turkey, a dove, a pony, a dog, and rabbits, were subsequently surrendered to the local Humane Society and then moved to another location for evaluation and care.

The Humane Society is requesting assistance to cover the cost of taking care of these recovered animals.

“A local individual has been gracious enough to house these animals while caring for their health and medical needs. Food and care for these animals is financially a huge undertaking for the shelter. Estimated food costs alone for these animals is upwards of $500.00 a week,” the Humane Society noted on its website. “We are reaching out for help. The animals are in need of feed and extra bowls.”

The organization, which offered to pick up donations of feed, also requested monetary assistance after apologizing that it was not able to share more information due to the ongoing investigation and court case.

People can also bring feed, money, or other supplies and donations to the Humane Society located at 203 Drury Lane, Henderson, KY 42420, and are encouraged to call in with any ideas or questions at (207) 826-8966.
