A funeral is being held for 27 dogs who were found dead inside of a home in Hampstead, Maryland. According to WMAR News, the public ceremony will take place in Reisterstown on Thursday morning – the cremated remains of the dogs will be buried at Baltimore Humane Society Memorial Park beginning at 10 a.m.

The deceased dogs were discovered in April at a rental house located at 4302 Black Rock Road- two individuals, who are accused of operating an illegal dog breeding operation, are facing multiple charges.  John J. Roberts, 49, and Laura S. Filler, 55, have been charged with more than 100 counts of animal cruelty.

The conditions inside of the residence have been described as deplorable – 27 additional dogs were found alive at the property, and some were reunited with owners thanks to microchips.

Animal welfare advocates hope to see Roberts and Filler receive the maximum possible sentence for their actions…the case has been called one of the worst cruelty situations ever encountered in the county.

    Those poor dogs……
    Makes me sick inside to think of these precious furbabies suffering…… That POS and her husband will both burn in Hell forever for their cruelty…… I certainly hope they both receive lengthy prison time for causing these cruel and unnecessary deaths……
    Poor precious treasures, you were failed by your humans and your lives were stolen from you……. Please look for MacKitty in Heaven and RIP amongst loving friends in his wonderful snuggle group……..

    Not only were they breeding dogs, they obviously were picking them up or stealing them. I hope justice will be harsh for these POS people. Don’t people that rent out property ever check on what is going on in the residence they own and are renting? I guess as long as they get the money who cares what they do to the house. This couple belong in prison with a path strait to Hell!
