Over 80 dogs have been rescued from a suspected puppy farm in Essex, UK, reported London Evening Standard.

The property in Dagenham was raided by police after an RSPCA investigation, 81 animals were seized and two people arrested for causing unnecessary suffering to an animal and for being involved in the illegal trade and sale of puppies.

“The dogs that were rescued from the address were found in appalling conditions,” said police sgt. Ian Lee.

“They were so small they could be placed in the palm of my hand.

“It was a sad sight to see them so weak and feeble. This is just part of an extensive investigation that is being carried out by the RSPCA.”

The dogs were taken to a veterinary hospital in Kent for treatment and rehabilitation.
