300 Dogs Discovered in Cramped and Deplorable Conditions During a Routine Kennel Check by County Officials

Eden, Maryland –  Nearly 300 dogs were rescued during a puppy mill bust at a Maryland home.

The dogs were discovered in cramped and deplorable conditions during a routine kennel check by county officials, last week.

Officials said 100 dogs were found inside the home; the other 200 were in an outbuilding on the Coopers Road property, in Eden.

“There were pregnant dogs, there were puppies. They were not in good condition, matted fur, and their living conditions were not good at all. There was no air flow in the room. And there was feces and things like that everywhere,” said Aaron Balsamo, Executive Director of The Human Society.

It took animal control more than 14 hours to rescue all the dogs, WBOC reported.

Today, efforts are underway to nurse the dogs back to health.

No charges have been filed. The case remains under investigation.
