FRANKLIN COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) – The Humane Society of Missouri rescued 55 dogs from a property in Franklin County Tuesday.
The dogs, most of which are Basset Hounds, were mostly in crates and were sitting in their own urine and feces. Authorities believe they had not been cared for since at least Sunday.
The owner of the property was believed to be breeding the dogs, was arrested last week on a warrant out of Iowa for fraudulent practices.
The animals will be held at the Humane Society’s headquarters in South City pending further court action. It is unknown when they will be available for adoption.
The Humane Society of Missouri posted a Facebook live of the dogs receiving care.
