Mansfield, OH – More than 80 dogs have been rescued from deplorable conditions in Richland County. The Humane Society of Richland County said:
Overwhelmed. Heartsick. Stressed. Did I mention overwhelmed?
This morning, we removed 65 dogs/puppies from one residence, along with 15 nursing puppies.
It was an absolutely disgustingly filthy environment.
Photos reveal the filthy conditions that dogs were forced to live in.
The horrible situation was discovered on Saturday when the Richland County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO) responded to a call about excessive barking. As reported by Fox 8 News, deputies found a “rusted-out trailer” holding cages filled with dogs.
One man, whose identity has not yet been publicly released, is facing charges for neglecting the 82 dogs and puppies.
The Humane Society is collecting donations to help care for the dogs taken in from the property. Find them on Facebook at this link.
