Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

DUPLIN COUNTY, NC (WTVD) — The Humane Society of the United States said nearly 50 dogs were rescued from a suspected Duplin County puppy mill Friday.

Duplin County Animal Control served a search warrant on the property and found a variety of large and small breed dogs and puppies, including German shepherds, dachshunds and yorkies, living in deplorable conditions and suffering from a multitude of untreated medical conditions.

Many of the animals were living in feces and filth and did not have access to clean water or food.

"These dogs were forced to live in filth, with no adequate shelter, for who knows how long.

"We're thankful to Duplin County Animal Control for their leadership and support to help these animals in need."
