Dogs who were living in terrible conditions suffered horrific injuries at a puppy mill operation in Stevens County, Washington. According to the non-profit rescue agency, Rescue4All,  32 adult dogs, six puppies and a cat were surrendered by the people who had been profiting from the breeding operation. The group wrote:

This was an INTENTIONAL PUPPY MILL & hoarding situation ….these monsters were breeding and selling puppies at Walmart, on the side of the road, in parking lots and whoever didn’t get sold came back to live out their life in hell… Or die the worst death possible

According to KREM News, the badly neglected dogs were suffering from a variety of maladies, including wounds from embedded collars, bloody stools and urine, parasite infestation and untreated lacerations. One dog had a huge, gaping hole which had to be surgically closed (the dog featured in the image survived).

According to KXLY News, Theresa and Thomas Hostetler were arrested in conjunction with the deplorable situation and they are facing felony and misdemeanor charges of animal cruelty.

    Theresa & Thomas Hostetler should both be hogtied and dumped in those filthy disgusting cages, lock the doors and forget about them – let these two miserable maggots suffer just like they let those poor animals suffer. Let the punishment fit the crime. ALL PUPPY MILLS ARE HELL HOLES AND SHOULD BE OUTLAWED NATION WIDE.

    The subject of puppy mills is one that’s sends my outrage and anger over the top and and incenses me like no other and the reason…… the fact the this country allows these TORTURE CHAMBERS FORM HELL TO LEGALLY OPERATE!!! All they do is to LEGALLY torture dogs and add to the immense over population of dogs and all the horrors that go along with it!!! In my opinion it it a NATION SHAME!!!!!! OMG THIS PISSES ME OFF!!! SHAME ON U AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!

    Evil, despicable pieces of shit. Look at the lacerations on that dog! Whatever punishment they get will be too good for them. They’ll rot in hell eventually.

    Puppymills and all breeding facilities (cat,bird etc) are horrible.
    This is disgusting the neglect and abuse that occurred here. Imagine the fear in the dogs that had to live with their friends that have died…yet remained in the.presence of the living knowingsoon it will be them.
    Thank goodness helped arrived, and so sad that it was too late for some.
    Rescue4all …everyone involved should be convicted of abuse and to never have the option of having another Irving being in their care.

    I hope the surviving animals will find loving homes. The image of the dead dog in hay will remain in my head for a very long time. I hope these POS’s will be punished severely!

    Why does it take so long to find these horrible mills and then do something about them. Who knows how many dogs have died at the hands of these monsters. Theresa and Thomas Hostetler need to spend a long time in jail, but most likely will be fined, put on probation and move on to some other location to continue their disgusting ways!

      BARKLEYS MOM,these hell holes are allowed to exist because they are LEGAL!!!! Governer Chris Christy of New Jersey REFUSED recently to in any way shape or form crack down on the conditions of these hell holes or outlaw them,in his view there is nothing wrong with puppy mills! That is the sentiment in all 50 states! Government on all levels refuse to outlaw them or make the monsters that run them and make money off them treat the dogs humanely! Believe me authorities everywhere know where most of them are,until people STOP buying dogs from pet stores or on line they will continue to flourish. These cruel LEGAL torture chambers from hell sell their “product” at pet stores,on line and at swap meets and auctions! This is why the mere mention of puppy mills sends my outrage over the top! Not to mention that besides the horrific treatment of these poor dogs they add to the immense over population of dogs and all the horrors that go along with it,like euthanizing 4 million dogs YEARLY! So u can thank ur local,state and federal government for refusing to make these torturous hell holes illegal!!
