It was really emotional seeing the
animals living like this and to this extent of suffering. It’s pretty sad to see that. My name is Jessica Johnson and I’m the
Director of Animal Crimes for the Animal Rescue Team of the Humane Society of the United States and today we were on property in Jones County assisting the Jones County Sheriff’s Department on a large-scale animal cruelty case. We found close to 90 dogs and cats living in unsanitary conditions throughout the property. We’re not sure why he’s like that but he
has no use of his back legs. He’s skin and bones. That’s one of the worst dogs I’ve seen in a long time. It’s just hard to see. It was probably one of the most unique properties I’ve ever been on but in a bizarre sensibility. There is definitely a lot of effort and intention put forth in caring for pretty unique items like a
train caboose or a London bus or things like that and can see that great care
went into making sure that that stayed presentable and beautiful and then there
was this dichotomy with animals living in filth and their own waste and not afforded the same level of decency as these things – these inanimate objects. It’s pretty filthy in here in general.
There’s not a whole lot of airflow. There’s some fans going but it’s very
warm in here with a high level smell of ammonia. They were part of a collection –
and a living collection but they didn’t even get the same decency as objects. We saw some pretty unfortunate and disturbing things today but this is the last day these animals are going to have to live like that. Today starts their new forever. Alright, my friend- let’s go!
