Dogs rescued from deplorable conditions to be adopted out Friday in Tri-Cities
The Benton Franklin Humane Society rescued 39 Yorkie mixes from a hoarding situation on Thursday Aug. 30.

Dozens of dogs rescued from a hoarding situation in northeastern Oregon will get new homes Friday.

Around 40 yorkipoos (Yorkshire Terrier and poodle mixes) were found living in deplorable conditions — among garbage, dead rats and with muddy water bowls.

The dogs have all been undergoing grooming, vaccinations and dental work to get ready for adoption.

The Benton-Franklin Humane Society said over 500 people have applied to adopt the puppies.

Staffers currently carting for the dogs will be going through the list of applications in the order in which they were received to ultimately decide the dog’s new homes.
