— Some dogs, who were once owned by a disabled veteran in Aberdeen, have found new homes.

The veteran, who asked to remain unnamed, said he gave up his 50 dogs because he could no longer care for them and wanted them to have a better life.

Some of those dogs were adopted Saturday.

Earlier this month, Animal Advocates of Moore County and Moore County Animal Control took in the dogs and had them spayed or neutered. The groups are trying to help the dogs find homes.

However, WRAL viewers have started a grassroots effort to help the veteran build a fence so that he can keep some of his dogs. The group is also collecting dog food and other supplies.

People wishing to help care for the animals can also call Animal Advocates at 910-944-5098 or send donations to:
