WAYNE COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Southern Cross Animal Rescue found and rescued five neglected dogs and a cat in Wayne County Tuesday.

SCAR received a tip about the neglected dogs and went with Wayne County sheriff's deputies to do a welfare check at the residence, where they discovered several emaciated dogs on chains, according to a SCAR Facebook post.

The owners said they knew the dogs were skinny and had failed to give them away. They agreed to surrender the five dogs and a cat.

SCAR said some board members and a few volunteers have stepped up to foster the animals, and they will need extensive rehabilitation.

To help out, contact SCAR or go to Amazon to help donate supplies to the animals.
