Licking County, Ohio - Authorities say a dog breeder from Indiana was transporting 62 dogs across the country in filthy conditions.
For hours, they traveled four to five dogs per crate.
According to Paula Evans, a Humane agent, "They were stuffed from the bottom to the top."
50 dogs and 12 puppies. Some, just a few weeks old.
Officials say a breeder from Country Boys Pets in Indiana was driving the dogs in a minivan from Indiana to New Jersey.
Some dogs had cuts, others scratches, and one had pneumonia.
The Licking County Dog Shelter, already filled to capacity, made a makeshift kennel to feed and care for the dogs.
But community members are pitching in, dropping of donations of small breed dog food and puppy pads to try and change that.
A veterinarian will screen the dogs and give them shots. After that, they will be put up for adoption. The prosecutor's office is considering charges in the case.
