Charges are pending tonight after nearly a dozen sick and dying dogs were found at what was supposed to be an animal rescue farm in Northwest Indiana farm.
The dogs were found filthy, hungry, sick and covered with sores.
The dogs were rescued in a police raid on a farm near Lowell, Indiana. The owner, identified by police as Kenneth E Wilson, ran something called the Paws Here Foundation and took donations for what he billed as a no-kill shelter.
Along with ten sick and dying dogs discovered by police and volunteers, two dead dogs were found stuffed into empty dog food bags. And nearby, they discovered what appears to be a mass grave holding the bodies of even more.
The Lake County Sheriff’s office is investigating but animal neglect charges are already being prepared for the shelter’s owner.
