HSUS and Humane Society of Charlotte were called in by the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office to assist in the rescue of approximately 250 animals from a Johnston, S.C., property. The sheriff’s office served a search and seizure warrant on the property and found more than 200 dogs of various breeds and ages living in deplorable conditions. The responders also found nine horses and nearly 40 fowl on the property.
The dogs ranged in breeds from chihuahuas and maltese to boxers and golden retrievers, and were suffering from eye infections, skin irritations, dental problems and lack of socialization. The nursing mothers and their puppies were being kept in filthy rabbit hutches, while some of the larger breeders were in pens or running loose on the property.
