In Rocky Point, New York, a heartless breeder left 21 Rottweilers, including puppies out in the freezing cold on Thursday. Jose Borgos, 52, has been charged with 21 counts of animal cruelty for dogs being illegally left out in the cold in the 24 degrees below-freezing temperatures.
According to the New York Daily News, Suffolk County Officer Karen Grenia had been driving past Borgos’ Broadway street home when she heard barking. In the backyard, the officer found nine dogs in travel crates inside of an old unheated shed. A tarp covered the chain linked kennel where the other dogs were found. The Rottweilers were different ages and included puppies.
Borgos states he is a Rottweiler breeder and faces 21 charges for violating New York State Agriculture and Markets Law for inappropriate housing for dogs. He also faces 21 charges for keeping dogs tethered when temperatures dip below freezing.
The dogs remain in the custody of Animal Care and Control.
Borgos remains free without bail.
