MOHAWK, NY – The Herkimer County Humane Society is seeking donations after a recent investigation brought several new animals to their facility.

In a Facebook message posted Thursday morning, the Humane Society says it has received eight new dogs, which were taken from a property in the Town of Danube this past weekend. NewsChannel 2 first reported on August 3rd that Paul Tarbox was charged with felony animal cruelty after multiple animals, including dogs, cats, and livestock, were seized from the property.

The Humane Society says the donations are needed to provide medical care. The eight dogs included a mother and four puppies, and the mother is said to be “sick, weak, and dehydrated.”
