Puppy mill dogs sent to emergency shelter

Posted: Updated:
CHARLESTON (WRCB) -
A team of veterinarians and volunteers spent their Sunday afternoon unloading a van filled with 100 rescued dogs that will be evaluated at a temporary emergency shelter on Hiwassee Street in Charleston. 

This weekend’s rescue was the last crop of animals that were removed after the puppy mill discovery on Wednesday.

 237 dogs were found confined to unsanitary conditions inside 56-year-old Rebecca Van Meter's home on Candies Creek Road in Bradley County. 

She was charged with one count of cruelty to animals and is out of jail on a $500 bond.

The Human Society and the SPAC of Bradley County say many of these animals should be healthy enough by the end of the week to either be fostered or adopted.
