Dozens of Dogs Rescued After Found Living in Squalid Conditions

That's a statement from Police Chief Dean Rondeau of the Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, Police Department on Friday, June 16, when more than 80 Great Danes were allegedly found living in squalid and cruel conditions, according to the Huffington Post. Conditions inside the suspected puppy mill were unsanitary, and the dogs had limited access to food and water.

The dogs were in the custody of Christina Fay, 60, who was arrested following a five-week investigation into reports of animal neglect and cruelty. Nine dogs taken from Wolfeboro over the weeks leading to Friday's rescue are now recuperating at Conway Area Humane Society.

The dogs will not be available for adoption until the case against Kay is heard as they are evidence in the criminal case.

The state director for the Humane Society of the United States said the conditions of a mansion from which 84 Great Danes have been seized were much worse than they had imagined.

The HSUS has safely transported the animals to a temporary emergency animal shelter at an undisclosed location.

"The ammonia from the urine was so overpowering that it would burn your eyes", he said in an interview Saturday.

Police said the case is "about reckless conduct, abhorrent behavior toward animals over profit, and scofflaw attitude about business practices".

Asked why police didn't move sooner, Rondeau said that it took time to secure warrants and to figure out the logistics of moving so many sick and contagious dogs. It was certainly a situation that no animal should be kept in, ' said Wolfeboro Police Officer Michael Straugh, who is the department's K-9 handler.
