Charges pending against owner of 90 animals found in desperate condition in south Zealand
Donations are flowing in to help the 90 dogs found in desperate conditions on a farm in Hyllinge is south Zealand.
The dogs were discovered after a citizen called animal protection agency Dyrenes Beskyttelses because he was concerned about some horses.
When the local head of the group showed up at the home of a 31-year-old single mother, he discovered the dogs and informed the local police.
“Every animal has worms, fleas, and ear and other infections,” read a post on the Facebook page of Fyns Internat, which has taken in 28 of the dogs.
“About half of their coats were filled with old urine and excrement. Many have had to be completely shaved.”
Half a million in rescue costs
Dyrenes Beskyttelses estimated that it will cost about 5,500 kroner per dog – nearly 500,000 in total – to nurse them back to health.
So far 90 dogs, all of which are cocker spaniels, have been rescued. Some of them are pregnant. Thus far they have been divided between shelters in Roskilde and Ejby on Funen,
