County: Washington

Disposition: Alleged

Abuser names unreleased

Police raided a home in East Montpelier, Vt. on Friday, finding more than a dozen cats and dogs living in filthy conditions.

According to Anne Ward of the Central Vermont Humane Society, the animals were covered in their own filth and didn't have access to food.

"It was really difficult to see some of the puppies and kittens," she said. One of the dogs, a Pug named Poppy, will need life-saving treatment. "Poppy does need surgery, he is in pain, but he's very excited to be here. He does have some difficulty eating and his mouth is in pretty bad shape."

The shelter is asking for donations. They're expecting to spend thousands of dollars to keep these animals healthy before sending them off to new homes.
