ROCKBRIDGE Co., Va. (WSET) -- The Rockbridge SPCA said it's looking for help fostering 60 dogs that were rescued from a hoarding situation.

The Lynchburg Humane Society is on the list of shelters that said they are ready to help those pets that have been rescued.

They said the 60 Hounds that were living outside on tie outs.

The Lynchburg Humane Society said in order to bring in those pets here, they need to first find homes for the pets currently in the center, whether that be through adoption or temporary fostering of dogs for the humane society.

"This is a desperate cry for help for immediate assistance, so that we can help them!" they wrote.

The Loudoun County Animal Services, the Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, and Fredericksburg Regional SPCA are also helping take in some of the dogs, but 45 are still in need of help.

The dogs are mixes of plots, walkers, blueticks, and black and tans hounds.

The Rockbridge SPCA said the owner is in poor health and in his late 70's and the dogs were tied to barrels and dog houses outside, some may have rabies vaccines, but the SPCA said they will be deworming them as they come in.

If you're interested in adopting or fostering a dog from the Lynchburg Humane Society so they can help bring in the Hounds, email their foster coordinator at or fill out the form below so that she can get you set-up with a pet to take into your care.
