OSSIPEE - An area police detective said the conditions that more than 50 dogs were found in at a local kennel were the worst he's seen in a 13-year career.
Detective Sergeant Robert King of the Ossipee Police Department said the conditions "included a multitude of fecal matter all about the area and you really couldn’t step anywhere inside without having to step in it.”
The Sweet Paws Inn & Spa as well as Sweet Tails Animal Rescue are both located at 1800 Route 16 Center Ossipee. King says only 3 or 4 of the dogs had homes, and were returned to their owners. The rest were shelter animals.
King said they worked with the N.H. Department of Agriculture as well as several rescues including the New Hampshire Humane Society, The Lakes Region Humane Society, and the Conway Area Humane Society (CAHS).
According to Debra Cameron, operations manager at the Conway Area Humane Society, CAHS took 31 animals, 22 were taken to the to the N.H. Humane Society, and seven more were transported to The Lakes Region Humane society.
It took more than 4 hours to remove all animals from both the home and kennel on the property.
King said the owner of the establishment, Laurinda Miller, will face charges.
He said officials are looking to charge for each individual animal, so there could be more than 50 charges against her.
