Iowa – An Iowa rescue organization has taken in nearly 100 dogs from a suspected puppy mill operation. On Tuesday, the Animal Rescue League of Iowa said that they were contacted about a call for help received over the weekend.
The agency said they were contacted by the Boone County Humane Society and the Boone County Sheriff’s Office to help rescue nearly 100 dogs from a commercial breeder.
Describing the horrible conditions the dogs and puppies had been living in:
When we arrived the smell hit us before we even entered the buildings. The dogs were living in their own feces and urine, including some pregnant mamas and newborn puppies. Many of the dogs were matted and some incredibly thin.
The rescue team worked well into the night to make the dogs and puppies comfortable.
No charges have been filed yet, but the Boone County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
Donations to help with the dogs’ care can be made here.
