50 animals saved from puppy mill

PELL CITY, Ala. (AP) - Animal control officers have removed more than 50 dogs - most of them toy breeds - from squalid conditions in a suspected puppy mill near Pell City.

The dogs were taken to the Pell City Animal Shelter for evaluation Wednesday after a hunter found them living in a pasture filled with feces and undrinkable water.

St. Clair County Sheriff's Capt. David Garrett said Thursday there are two suspects, who did not live on the abandoned property, but the investigation is continuing.

All the dogs are toy breeds - pugs, Shih Tzus, Yorkies, poodles and a beagle - but there was one German shepherd who animal shelter manager Ken Ray believes was left on the premises to stand guard.

Ray estimated it would take a few days or a week before any of them would be available for adoption.
