Humane society officers rescue 85 neglected dogs from Havelock house

Here :sad:

Called one of the worst cases of animal cruelty the Peterborough Humane Society has seen, 85 dogs -- many just skin and bones -- were seized from a home in Havelock yesterday.

Peterborough Humane Society general manager Brad Algar said he got a call Dec. 11 from the Peterborough County-City Health Unit about unvaccinated animals living at one house in Havelock.

With a warrant in hand, Algar's team seized the dogs yesterday and brought them back to Peterborough in a rental truck where they are now being treated by a veterinarian.

Of the 85 dogs, Algar said, more than 60 were living in the owner's "very small house." The rest were outside.

The dogs were in poor condition, many of them thin and malnourished, he said.

"It was a pretty bad situation," he said. "Some of the dogs were emaciated."

Most of the seized dogs are large breeds, such as Labrador retrievers, he said. There were also about three or four puppies.

At the shelter last night the sound of dogs barking and whimpering was deafening.

"This is one of the worst cases I've seen in this area," Algar said. "We've had puppy mills before, but this isn't a puppy mill because he

wasn't selling them. He was keeping them."
