WALTHALL COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Walthall County Sheriff's Department along with The Humane Society of the United States raided a puppy mill with approximately 80-100 dogs, living and dead, on Magee Hill Road outside of Tylertown on Monday.

Among the dogs many were dead, and skeletal remains are mixed with living animals in small, dark, filthy enclosures.

Lydia Satler, state director of the Humane Society, said it was the worst puppy mill she had ever seen in her career. "It's just very sad to see that they lived and died in the same cage," she said.

The owner of the dogs is a pastor and was selling the dogs out of his church in Louisiana. Authorities were alerted to the dogs when a person who was going to buy one of the dogs saw how bad the conditions were.

The South Mississippi Humane Society and Southern Pines Animal Shelter along with Dr. Jennifer Hendrick from Live Oak Animal Clinic in Pass Christian, Dr. Kirk Frazier from the All Animal Clinic in Hattiesburg and more than 30 volunteers participated.

The breeds at the mill were Boston terriers, Chihuahuas, and Yorkshire terriers.

All the live dogs are going the Humane Society of South Mississippi where they will be checked out by a veterinarian.
