SIDNEY, Ohio - Authorities say they expect most of the 241 dogs rescued from an alleged puppy mill in western Ohio to be placed in foster care by Thanksgiving.
WHIO-TV reports that sheriff's deputies and the dog warden raided the Shelby County property and seized the animals on Saturday following a six-month investigation.
Officials said the dogs of various breeds were found in very poor health, and kennel conditions were determined to be unfit for housing animals. One dog was found dead.
Multiple charges are expected to be filed against the owners of the business, called Pedigree Pets.
Sidney is about 40 miles north of Dayton.
