Dead puppies found in kitchen freezer at alleged puppy mill in Texas
DALLAS — The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) seized 72 dogs and puppies from an alleged puppy mill in Canton, Texas. CBS Dallas-Fort Worth reports 12 deceased dogs were found individually wrapped in plastic bags in the kitchen freezer.
SPCA investigators received a complaint of suspected animal cruelty from another animal welfare organization on March 1 regarding an alleged puppy mill. Investigators visited the property that same day, but were not able to make contact with the owner.
On March 13, the investigators returned to the property and witnessed the animals’ conditions. SPCA investigators felt it was in the animals’ best interest to seize them.
