Nearly 50 adult dogs and puppies of various breeds surrendered from a recently alleged puppy mill raid will be available for adoption beginning April 7, announced the The Wake County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in North Carolina on Tuesday reported abclocal.go.

The breeds surrendered were German shepherds, dachshunds, and Yorkshire terriers. Some of the dogs will need lifelong specialized care.

The dogs were found to be living in deplorable conditions; many of the dogs were extremely scared and had never been socialized.

On March 21, in a joint effort of the HSUS, Duplin County Animal Services, Pet Friends of Duplin County, and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Wake County, both large breed and small breed dogs were rescued from egregious living conditions. Kennels were filled with feces and urine, clean water and food were not available, and many of the dogs suffered from ear and eye infections
