Animal Rescue

The Ashland County Sheriff's Office is investigating an animal rescue along County Road 1475 in Milton Township.

ASHLAND — Two decrepit barns, thick with dust and cobwebs, greeted rescuers when they arrived at a rural Ohio property on that cold fall morning.

"It really, truly looked abandoned, except there were animals living in there," said Laura Koivula, director of animal crimes and investigations for the Animal Rescue Team.
