CAMDENTON — More than 100 dogs have been removed from a south-central Missouri kennel after the owner voluntarily gave up the animals.
Officials with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Humane Society of Missouri took the dogs from the kennel in Camden County to Humane Society facilities in Springfield and St. Louis today. They'll receive medical care and eventually be put up for adoption.
The dogs were a mix of large and small breeds.
The ASPCA says the kennel owner could no longer afford to feed the dogs and contacted a rescue group.
Animal rights advocates say Missouri is home to more than 3,000 commercial dog breeding facilities — more than 20 percent of the U.S. total.
