Great Danes Rescued From 'Squalid' Puppy Mill

Great Danes Rescued From 'Squalid' Puppy Mill

Fay was arrested on two counts of animal neglect, and according to the police department, she's likely to face more charges as the investigation plays out. She is out on bail and has a court date for August 2.

Once an air-conditioned tractor-trailer outfitted with built-in cages was filled to capacity, Hamrick said, there wasn't a single bark, indicating to her the dogs were happy to be in that clean, safe environment.

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

"Really it's a win-win - we help dogs that wouldn't otherwise go up for adoption, and they help us provide medical and behavioral care to dogs in ME that need it most", she said. The smell of ammonia, feces and raw chicken overwhelmed rescuers, the press release says. It was not the conditions law enforcement witnessed when checking on the Great Danes.

Coventry said that all transfer dogs will be vaccinated, spayed or neutered and microchipped and their behavior evaluated before they go home with their new families.

"There is a perception that puppy mills happen only in the Midwest and the South".

Fay was reportedly selling the puppies for $2,500 each under the kennel name De La Sang Monde.

Fay sold the dogs for several thousand dollars apiece.

They included the town's fire and public works departments, CAHS, HSUS, Pope Memorial SPCA, Carroll County Sheriff Department, Bartlett and Barnstead police, State Police and Stewart's Ambulance. Many were frightened. There appeared to be no access to food and water for most of the dogs. Consumers need to be better educated. Nine puppies were collected at another property. Making it hard to enforce this law with breeders who are not honest.

For those asking about adopting the dogs, this is a good start. As the dogs are evidence in the criminal case, they will be unavailable for adoption while the charges remain pending. In the past, she has seen cases take anywhere from three to 18 months. "Words can not describe the absolute abhorrent conditions these animals were living in", he said.

'It was horrifying in and of itself, but I've never seen conditions like this in a house of that magnitude, ' Lindsay Hamrick, N.H. State Director for the Humane Society of the United States, told Union Leader.

"We urge lawmakers to pass a comprehensive cost of animal care law to require those charged with animal cruelty to pay for the costs associated with the care of their animals while the case is prosecuted, so animal welfare groups and taxpayers do not bear these financial burdens", she said.
