Four of the female dogs were pregnant.
According to OSPCA agent Laura Mackasey, the conditions suggest irresponsible breeding practices.
“They were lacking adequate provisions to be outside, so namely shelters and dog houses,” she said. “They also did not have potable water at the time. The only water that was provided was frozen.”
An unknown individual called the OSPCA about the dogs and suggested there was also a donkey in the area. The OSPCA found the dogs but there was no donkey in sight.The OSPCA is still investigating.
