In a bizarre and disturbing discovery, the Laredo Sector Border Patrol rescued 25 puppies that were being illegally imported into the United States on Sunday. Officers in Laredo, Texas found the puppies in three duffel bags inside of the vehicle.

Adan Sandoval, 28, has been charged with multiple counts of cruelty to non-livestock animals. According to My SANews, Public Information Officer Joe Baeza, the dogs were in “pretty bad shape,”  and had been stuffed into duffel bags without food and water. The puppies’ coats were matted and encrusted with urine and feces as well as full of worms.

Sandoval,28, is from Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico. He did not have the necessary permits and vaccination forms available, although he claims the puppies have all been properly vaccinated.. It is illegal to import puppies into the United States until they are at least six-months of age. The puppies and dogs are also required to vaccinated for rabies, distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirus and the parainfluenza virus.

Imported puppies and dogs must also have import permits from the U.S. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)

The puppies have been taken to the Laredo Animal Shelter and will not be available for adoption at this time. Sandoval stated the dogs were in pet carriers, and stated he had no intentions of selling any of the puppies. The puppies are all reported to be doing well.

An investigation by the Laredo Police Department continues.

    I am certainly against stuffing puppies into a duffel bag, but the article is also suggesting that not vaccinating them is also an irresponsible thing, when, in fact, most people allow themselves to be swayed by such brainwashing, and don’t bother to dig for the facts.

    It’s a monumental endeavor, getting people to even start to look at crimes which have been long ago set up as not only “normal,” but “beneficial.” Immune systems are being altered, damaged, and even destroyed, by injection of these poison cocktails (with no real proof of efficacy), consisting of heavy metals (mercury, aluminum, lead, cadmium), chemicals (formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, MSG, antifreeze, acetone, etc.) foreign RNA and DNA from other species of animals (cells from rabbits, mice, cows, chickens, worms, etc.) bypass all the natural filters of the body, incoporating with host cells of the animal receiving the injection. My veterinarian admitted to me that all she was taught about vaccines in medical school was: “They are good, and you will give them.” Period.

    It’s easy to rail against the criminal activities of the little guy, but when it comes to the big time crimes committed by the big time criminal corporations, it’s unfortunate that so many people suddenly choose the option “Ignorance is bliss.”

    Poor little babies; how awful that people ever allowed animals to be bought and sold, to be commodities, a source of income for lazy, cruel people. The lack of vaccines would be the only thing that wasn’t terrible that this “man” did to them (despite his claim to have vaccinated them). If they were in fact not shot up with vaccines, at least their immune systems weren’t assaulted on top of everything else they suffered. Until now. I pray for each one of their little bodies to have the strength to override the shots and be healthy and happy for life in the best of homes. And for all dog breeders to disappear off the face of the Earth and go to their just reward. Fantasies, yes, but good ones, hope they come true.
