Several dogs rescued after calls of complaints
SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE, Fla. (WSVN) -- Animal Services say more than 80 dogs, between all kinds and sizes, were rescued early Tuesday morning.
Pictures showed some of the dogs and the poor conditions they were living in.
Officials said the dogs are quarantined and being cared for by veterinarians who are assessing their conditions.
Animal Services said the dogs were found inside of a truck parked at 12375 SW 248th St. The dogs were under the care of a mother and daughter at the home. Charges remain pending.
They said the calls they received were about dog fighting, animal breeding and possible dead animals because of a smell coming from the area. "Our main concern was the living conditions of the dogs and the way the cages were, three to four inches feet of feces kicked up in the cages and three to four dogs in most of the cages," Luis Salgado, Chief of Shelter Services said.
Many of the dogs will be put up for adoption after they are cared for. For the entire month of September, they will waive adoption fees.
