Dogs found in ‘filthy cages’ as breeding property raided

Breeding property raided

More than 100 animals, mostly dogs, were taken from a property that animal welfare campaigners described as having filthy conditions.

RSPCA chief executive Tim Vasudeva said the animals from the property near Strathalbyn were being kept at the Lonsdale shelter.

“A significant number of pregnant dogs and also mums with young puppies so we’re just focused on getting them cared for and out into foster care at this point of time, so we’re looking for members of the community that might be able to help us do that,” he said.

Mr Vasudeva said an investigation was continuing but he could confirm the breeder had been supplying pet shops.     Read more from ABC News…
