In South Dade, Florida, 99 dogs and five cats were rescued on Thursday from a “living hell.” According to the Miami-Dade County Animal Services assistant director Kathleen Labrada, some of the dogs were so matted with urine and feces, that half their body weight were just their coats.
The dogs are small to medium size Shih Tzu, Basset Hound and terrier mixes. According to the Miami-Dade County Commissioner Danielle Levine Cava, officers acted on a 311 tip with the Humane Animal Rescue Team and arrived at Alice James’ filthy home.
All of the pets are being checked by veterinarians and cleaned up. Check this little guy getting a spa day:
