ONTARIO (CBS) — Dozens of dogs that were rescued from an Inland Empire puppy mill are now up for adoption.

KNX 1070 Reports

The Inland Valley Humane Society and SPCA officers received an anonymous tip Wednesday that the animals were being kept in inhumane conditions at a south Ontario home located in the 400 block of Maple Street.

“The dogs, which ranged in age from 3 weeks to 5 years, were kept caged in small collapsible kennels inside a barn with no light or ventilation,”  Inland Valley Humane Society Supervisor of Animal Services Beth Les said.

The dogs were forced to stand in puddles of their own waste and had no drinking water, Les added.

The 33 dogs included a husky, poodles, Shih Tzus, Yorkshire terriers, Pekingese, terrier mixes, basset hounds and Chihuahuas.

Animal control officials said the animals were being commercially bred and sold for $100 apiece.

Ontario residents Luis Reynoso, 45, and Flor Sanches, 42, were arrested for misdemeanor cruelty to animals, according to The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin.

To adopt one of the rescued dogs, call the Inland Valley Humane Society at (909) 623-9777 or log onto ivhsspca.org.
