Eighty-six dogs rescued from ‘poor conditions’ will steal your heart
We will never understand how people can be so cruel to animals.
These saved dogs would melt your heart into little pieces, even though they haven't had the best start in life.
Unfortunately, 86 dogs, including 23 puppies had to be rescued from an unlicensed dog breeder, by a Roscommon Dog Warden.
The animal's hero found them in "very poor conditions" according to the ISPCA.
One person had been caring for all 63 adult dogs and 23 puppies.
Thankfully, the ADORABLE pooches are in the safe hands of the ISPCA.
Heartbreakingly, 19 of them are being treated by the super vets for a number of conditions, including mange, eye and ear infections.
If the ISPCA didn't have enough on their plate, another 17 puppies were seized from a house on Thursday.
The pups were the consequence of irresponsible breeding by the owner.
Understandably, the ISPCA is now calling on the public for financial donations to help care for the 100 canines, which the group have seized in just three days.
Senior ISPCA Inspector Kevin McGinley said: “The ISPCA is grateful to have secured the removal of all dogs from this unlicensed premises."
"With so many dogs in our care we are appealing to the public to support us financially with this challenge and by offering responsible homes for the pups and dogs. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Roscommon County Council and the county Dog Warden for their assistance.”
To relieve some of the pooch pressure, Dogs Trust stepped in and took 25 dogs, which the ISPCA "are very grateful for".

Breeds of the dogs range from Jack Russell terriers, Pugs and Shih Tzu's.-They're all just YUMMY.
The animals are all in the experienced hands of the ISPCA’s centres in Longford and Donegal.

In light of the events, the ISPCA has called for the public to report any suspicions about unlicensed dog breeds to its National Animal Cruelty Helpline on 1890-515-515 or to their local authority.
It also asked owners to neuter their animals to avoid unwanted litters.
If you're interesting in adopting any of the dogs, they will all be vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.
The ISPCA have a number of guidelines before you can adopt, such as a home visit to ensure that all their animals are responsibly re-homed.
If you could give one of these heart melting pups a good home, can we come over and give it a pet please?
We will bring the cake and dog treats!
