The Pennsylvania SPCA needs donations and homes for 28 German shepherds rescued from 'filthy' conditions.
The Pennsylvania SPCA is seeking new homes for 28 German shepherds recently rescued from "their life of filth and neglect." The dogs included a puppy and a pregnant female. Some of the dogs were emaciated and so frail they had to be carried to safety. The agency's Humane Law Enforcement team obtained a search warrant in Marcus Hook, Delaware County, last Friday to investigate complaints about conditions at a property being used by Sixth Angel Shepherd Rescue Inc. The SPCA says: "Instead of providing care for animals in need, the "rescue" became a nightmare for the animals living inside according to the official complaints.

Anyone with information about animal abuse or neglect can call the PSPCA's toll-free 24-hour hotline
It's likely that more than one person knows how 11 puppies ended up dead, skinned and dumped along a rural road in Lehigh County last Friday. "These things don't usually happen in isolation.

State police and the Lehigh County Humane Society are investigating the puppy case. Anyone with information is urged to call Christine Wiggins at the Humane …
