At the request of Pepin County Sheriff’s Office, PHAC helped assist in the rescue of nearly 90 dogs and puppies from a farm in Wisconsin. When investigators arrived at the scene, they found dogs of varying breeds and sizes, including puppies and pregnant dogs living in unsanitary conditions.

In addition, two horses and five donkeys were also found at the scene. Some animals had dirty coats and appeared to have untreated medical issues that required immediate veterinary treatment.

“The Pepin County Sheriff’s Office strives to protect and preserve all life forms within the borders of Pepin County. This case has been going on for some time and unfortunately today we removed nearly 90 dogs to protect them from future dangers of medical issues and unsanitary conditions,” said Pepin County Sheriff Joel Wener. “I would like to thank the ASPCA and its staff for their assistance, as well as the hard work of Pepin County Sheriff’s Office deputies and detectives in hopefully bringing this matter to an end.”

The dogs removed from the property have been transferred to an ASPCA recovery center where they will receive medical and behavioral care and enrichment. In addition to the removal and care of dogs, they also assist with operational planning and transportation, evidence collection and crime scene processing, investigative and legal support, medical examinations and legal and behavioral assessments.

“When the ASPCA became aware of the poor conditions these animals were living in, it was clear that intervention was needed, and we thank the Pepin County Sheriff’s Office for their partnership in ending the suffering of these animals. animals and bringing them to safety,” said Matt Bershadker, president and CEO of the ASPCA.

“We are proud to provide our resources and expertise in this case and in all of our nationwide rescue work to help animals in crisis find the critical and compassionate care they need and deserve,” Bershadker continued.

The ASPCA’s response was made possible through the generous support of the Alex and Elisabeth Lewyt Charitable Trust.
