More than 60 dogs and other animals were rescued on Friday from terrible living conditions in Sequatchie County, Tennessee.
Authorities visited the property after HSUS received several calls from concerned neighbours about the animals’ well-being. They found the animals living in appalling conditions in dirty cages all over the house and outside. The dogs were covered in faeces and many suffered from urine scalding, emaciation and dehydration. Dead animals were found in a freezer.
A rescue operation was then scheduled by the Sequatchie County Sheriff’s Department with the help of the Humane Educational Society, McKamey Animal Center and The Animal Care Center of Ooltewah.
All animals were rescued and received veterinary care.
