The freezing temperatures in the Northeast have caused flight cancellations and warnings for residents to stay warm to avoid frost bites and hypothermia. Pets are just as vulnerable as people when it comes to the danger of prolonged exposure in extremely cold weather.

For the Sprakers Puppy Mill, these warning appear to mean nothing for the dogs on their property. According to several facebook posts, two dogs have died from being left outside during this cold storm.

In a recent facebook post, a dog appears to be frozen to the ground. One poster indicated that the two dogs who died there recently during the nights were quickly removed with a wheel barrow. The dogs are forced to live outside during this below zero temperature with only large plastic barrels with hay for shelter.

Concerned residents are appealing for help to rescue these dogs and have them brought to adequate shelter. For more on the conditions in Sprakers, a recent story posted on has more details, click here.

Update from WNYT NewsChannel 13:

A state Supreme Court judge has agreed there is enough evidence to warrant a hearing on the dogs outside at a kennel in Sprakers, Montgomery County. He will listen to both sides tomorrow afternoon.

NewsChannel 13 has aired stories looking into this, and we've also spoken with police. They tell us no laws are being broken. An attorney for animal rights activists says they are lying.

We will have more on this story on our 10pm newscast on My 4 Albany, and NewsChannel 13 Live at 11.
