Twenty-three abused, mistreated and abandoned dogs were rescued from squalor after receiving a report of serious animal cruelty and neglect.

The dogs were living at a home in Aguascalientes, Mexico, in what rescuers describe as some of the most filthy conditions they have ever seen.

The poor dogs were found living in small enclosures with no food or water. They were malnourished, dangerously dehydrated and weak. They were filthy, covered in mats, and their paws were red and sore from standing in their own feces.

“When we arrived, they were extremely excited to see us and desperate for attention,” Felipe Márquez Muñoz, animal cruelty program manager at Humane Society International/México, said. “If we had not intervened, I dread to think what would have happened to them. Now they are getting the care they so desperately need and will have a chance to be adopted into loving families.”

The State Attorney for Environmental Protected teamed up with Humane Society International and Amigos Pro Animal to seize the pups after their owner voluntarily surrendered them to authorities. The animals were transferred to a temporary shelter and are now safe in HSI’s care, where they are receiving urgent veterinary treatment and behavioral assessment.

Once they are recovered, they will be available for adoption. Amigos Pro Animal, along side HSI, hold adoption events and activities every week to find homes for neglected, abandoned and abused animals.
