53 Dogs in agony saved from certain death thanks to the SPA

More than 50 dogs held in terrible conditions were rescued from their plight on March 7 by the Society for the Protection of Animals from Lyon. They were placed in local shelters and a complaint was lodged against their owner.

The original intention was laudable. Unfortunately the means were not there. Dogs hungry, rickety, dirty, sick, piled on top of each other... it is a scene of horror which broke out in the light thanks to the work of the SPA of Lyon. Saying act on behalf of an association for the defense of animals, a woman from Saint-Martin-en-Haut (Rhone) kept at home 53 dogs . The most "lucky" animals lived in the dark, in the middle of their droppings and rubbish. The others, on the other hand, did not leave their tiny cage and were piled "in the toilets of the house."

On the photos published by the shelter, one can easily realize the extent of the damage:
