BREAKING NEWS: Puppy Mill Raided in Wicomico County, 300 Puppies Seized
News of possible animal cruelty in Wicomico County sends a shock wave through Delmarva on "National Pet Day." WRDE has confirmed theHumane Society of Wicomico County has rescued 300 dogs from a home in Eden, during a puppy mill raid.
EDEN, Md.- Authorities say "unsatisfactory conditions" prompted the removal of 300 dogs from a Wicomico County home last week.
Wicomico County Animal Control said in a press release Monday that on Wednesday, April 6, animal control officers, with the assistance of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, conducted a kennel check on a county resident.
According to Lt. Tim Robinson of the sheriff's office, 200 of the 300 dogs were inside a barn on the property, located on the 5000 block of Cooper Road in the Eden area. Robinson said it took animal control and the sheriff's office 14 hours to remove the dogs.
Most of the dogs removed from the property were Pomeranians, according to Aaron Balsamo, executive director of the Humane Society of Wicomico County. Balsamo said the majority of the dogs are not in good condition. He also said the vast number of dogs suddenly coming under the Humane Society's care has prompted the organization to seek donations from the public including dog food, old newspapers and liners for dog cages, as well as cleaning supplies.
No charges have been filed yet, according to Robinson.
