Six emaciated Great Danes found running at large in Walworth County are now at the Lakeland Animal Shelter in Elkhorn.
The four females and two males range in age from 10 months to 5 years old, and are in poor health.
The shelter noted that the dogs will also need help with socialization skills before they're ready for adoption.
Lakeland estimates it receives 2,500 animals each year, and because it is an adoption guarantee facility, the shelter takes care of the animals as long as they remain adoptable--an expensive undertaking.
