165 neglected German Shepherds saved from property in Georgia

In excess of 165 German Shepherds have been rescued from a property in Georgia, U.S., according to the Atlanta Humane Society.

According to reports, the dogs were neglected and living in filthy conditions, whilst many of them required medical attention.

As per WSB-TV, the animals were moved to campuses in Midtown Atlanta and Alpharetta on January 5, whilst the owner of the property was arrested on animal cruelty charges.

Our team is working closely with Candler County Sheriff’s Department to provide the support and care needed to ensure the best outcome for these dogs.”

Officials, meanwhile, have confirmed that the animals will be given medical exams after being properly assessed.

While no animal should ever have to face conditions such as the ones these dogs did, we’re thankful they’ll now be given a second chance in life.
