The Lincoln County Humane Society announced Monday on their Facebook page that the 57 dogs and puppies rescued on Saturday from a condemned Gleason, Wis. home are being evaluated and examined by veterinarians. On Sunday, donations poured in for the benefit of the little ones announced the Green Bay Press Gazette.com.

The couple who owned all of the dogs had contacted LCHS on Saturday morning asking for help with 20 dogs they were unable to sell. When volunteers and workers of the organization arrived at the home, they were shocked at the egregious conditions of the home that had no heat.

Dog feces and urine were everywhere; the odors were horrendous. The homeowners were sleeping on a mattress.

Authorities also discovered another 37 dogs at the home, and were eventually able to convince the owners to surrender all of the animals.

Earlier Monday afternoon, the LCHS stated:

There are several breeds that came in from the puppy mill situation -

Australian Shepherds
Teddy Bears
Chihuahuas
Chihuahua/Poodle Mix
Poodles

The nursing puppies are not available for viewing but we are accepting adoption applications on any and all dogs. Preference will be given to adoptions over foster."

Donations are now being accepted. The dogs are not available for adoption yet, but would-be pet parents are encouraged to fill out applications. Please click here for more information.

Many of the photos of the newest residents appear and will be added to the organization's Facebook page. Please click here for a preview of some of the cutest faces you will ever see.
