A couple in Dothan, Alabama, is facing multiple animal cruelty charges after dozens of animals were found living in squalor at their home. According to the Dothan Police Department, 34-year-old Le Ngoc Pham and 47-year-old Hoan Cong Nguyen were operating an illegal breeding operation at a house on Peachtree Drive.

According to the authorities, patrol units were dispatched, along with Animal Services Officers, to the couple’s home on Friday afternoon. The responding officers discovered an illegal breeding site and reached out to investigators, who worked with animal services officers, to remove 65 dogs and 16 exotic birds from the residence.

Photos taken at the scene reveal the deplorable conditions investigators encountered – rows of small cages, filled with urine and feces, dirty food and water dishes, and dogs existing in cramped and filthy conditions.

The disturbing discovery has resulted in 24 counts of Aggravated Animal Cruelty and 57 counts of Animal Cruelty.

The Dothan Police Department stated:

At approximately 4:00 p.m. Friday afternoon Patrol Units were dispatched along with Animal Services Officers to the 2900 block of Peachtree Drive. The call was in reference to an animal cruelty complaint. Officers discovered an illegal animal breeding site and contacted Investigators.

Investigators worked with Animal Services Officers throughout the night rescuing 65 dogs and 16 exotic birds. These animals were found living in deplorable conditions and were not being properly taken care of.

Per the Dothan Police Department: All persons arrested are innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

    Good arrests. Please do all you can and keep us posted. Please get the animals out of there—all of them. Are these people even citizens? Are they eating dogs and cats like so many Asians do? Selling for pit fights? Taxpayers must help with prosecution. Donations might be in order, Homes for the abused will be found. Give the animals some comfort please. Deport the offenders.

      those people have zero regard for animals. It’s sickening the way they think of animals, in terms of eating them or making a profit off of them and also don’t mind torturing them a bit. twisted effers.

    More animal torture that will go unpunished because leftist judges will not do their jobs and listen to the people’s wishes. Until we get this country back to being great again this will continue.

      It will take our voices
      I found out today that Ringling Bros. Is closing their Circus. That is because of voices speaking up about the abuse if the aninals. Sometimes it takes a village working together to make a change. The laws are not tough enough to animal abusers. I follow all kinds of animal sites. It is mind blowing the abuse that is out there. Especially in other countries

    • Money says:

      Don’t assume all Vietnamese are the same because I can say the Fkn same thing about y’all redneck! What they do is against the laws and I be the first to throw them fkrs straight to the tree branch!

  5. Sheri says:

    Thank you!!! Please make sure these two get the maximum penalty!!!!! Hope they weren’t eating the ones that didn’t sell

    Two scum bags!! I’d be willing to bet that these two animal abusers get the customary fine and probation! They will just set up shop somewhere else,and why not,they know they won’t be punished in any significant way! If they sit in a jail cell for a year or two they just might think twice about repeating this horror again! I’m so relieved that these poor innocent animals have been rescued!! THANK GOD

  8. Red says:

    There is no denying what they were doing and the abuse they were inflicting on a continual basis to these animals. Give the maximum penalty and fines and lock these two lazy monsters away forever!!

  9. Carole says:

    They are sub-human SOBs and deserve maximum punishment, but our courts probably won’t do anything thanks to the idiots that claim to be fair and competent judges.

  10. Nancy Raymond says:

    Per our lousy judicial system for animals, they will get little to no punishment and the taxpayers will foot the bill for these maggots to continue – I would prefer they be stuffed in those vile disgusting cages they made the animals live in, lock the door and forget they ever existed. Give them a dose of their own medicine.
