This is not the type of thing we like to post at PlayFetch, but I was so angered by it, I had to share…

Calif. woman arrested, 60 dogs seized from home LAKESIDE, Calif.

A California woman has been arrested after animal control officers found 60 dogs in crates inside her small Lakeside home east of San Diego. Sixty-five-year-old Alice Via was arrested Wednesday for investigation of animal cruelty and neglect. She ran what she called the San Diego Boxer Rescue, and kept mostly boxers and Chihuahuas. San Diego County spokesman Dan DeSousa says the dogs were confined in cages stacked two high throughout the two-bedroom 750-square-foot home. He says most of the dogs had injuries to their feet and noses from trying to escape, and some also had skin and respiratory problems. DeSousa says officers were alerted by someone who went to look at a dog and observed the conditions. The dogs will be taken to county shelters.
