About 90 dogs have been removed from a residence in the Southeast Missouri town of Doniphan.
The Humane Society of Missouri is calling it a hoarder situation; the property is not a breeding facility. The Humane Society’s Animal Cruelty Task Force and officers from the Ripley County Sheriff’s Department say the dogs were very thin with skin infections, eye injuries and parasites. Several dog carcasses and remains were reportedly scattered around the property.
The animals were brought to the Humane Society headquarters in St. Louis. No arrestes were made, but a disposition hearing is Sept. 7.
