BURNETT COUNTY — Twelve “Samoyed” dogs pulled from a home in Burnett County, Wisconsin will be cared for at the Wisconsin Humane Society in Milwaukee.

WHS officials said Wednesday, May 4th the dogs were rescued from the home at the request of Burnett County Health & Human Services officials.

The dogs’ owner was apparently overwhelmed, trying to care for too many dogs, and WHS officials say the owner surrendered all 12 of the dogs to the WHS.

The dogs were then on their way from Burnett County to Milwaukee.

WHS officials said on Facebook: “We will have more details (Thursday), including how you can help the Samoyeds, but we promise that from here on out, they’ll receive loving, expert care they deserve.”

The Wisconsin Humane Society is accepting donations if you would like to support the care of these dogs.
