Two starving pit bulls were rescued from filthy conditions on Thursday night by the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals in West Kensington reported abclocal.go.com.
Authorities were investigating a completely different case when they heard the plaintive cries from dogs coming from a nearby apartment. As the agents peered into the basement window at the 2100 block of East Cambria St. residence, they were able to see feces and urine all over the floor. There was no food or water for the dogs; one dog was so weak he could hardly walk.
Humane officers entered the residence and had to carry the one pit bull named Lexington out of the home. Hudson, although undernourished was not in as bad shape as Lexington.
The dogs are now being cared for by the PA SPCA and are expected to recover.
The owners have been charged with animal cruelty.
And if that wasn't disturbing enough, nearby at the corner of Martha and Monmouth St., authorities found the decomposed bodies of five dogs. One pit bull was found in a garbage bag, and the other smaller breed dogs were found in a cooler and in a pile. None of the dogs had any identification collars on, nor were they micro-chipped.
