The Wake County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said Tuesday that it will start taking adoption applications for 46 dogs and one cat rescued last week from an alleged Duplin County puppy mill on April 7.

"A lot of them were scared when they first came in," said Raymond Kakeh with the Wake SPCA. "They were very skittish."

Duplin County Animal Control served a search warrant on the property with the help of the SCPA and the Human Society and found a variety of large and small breed dogs and puppies, including German shepherds, dachshunds and yorkies, living in deplorable conditions and suffering from a multitude of untreated medical conditions.

Many of the animals were living in feces and filth and did not have access to clean water or food.

The owner agreed to surrender the animals. Two men face multiple charges.

Now, SCPA workers are getting the animals cleaned up, fed properly, and given medical examinations, so they can be adopted out. For more information, visit: http://www.spcawake.org
