BREAKING NEWS: Pennsylvania SPCA Rescues 18 Puppies and Dogs from Lancaster Unlicensed Breeder 
"The Pennsylvania SPCA today announced it has rescued 18 dogs and puppies living in filthy conditions from an unlicensed breeder in Lancaster County.
Responding to a tip from Pennsylvania’s Office of Dog Law Enforcement, officers executed a search warrant Friday afternoon at a farm in Lancaster, PA and found a variety of dogs and puppies in an outbuilding with waste throughout their enclosures. The animals were removed and transported to PSPCA Headquarters in Philadelphia for medical evaluations and treatment. The puppies and dogs are not available at this time. The investigation is ongoing and charges are likely once completed.
This is the third large scale search warrant by the PSPCA in Lancaster County in the last 9 months. Last December, PSPCA officers rescued 62 dogs living in unsanitary conditions from a residence, also in Lititz. And in April, PSPCA officers rescued 19 more dogs from the same property. The owner in that case plead guilty to all charges.
'Being able to respond so quickly to animals suffering like this is a top priority for PSPCA,' said Jerry Buckley, Pennsylvania SPCA CEO. 'I am grateful that due to the support of our donors and community partners, we are able to help these dogs in their time of need.'
The PSPCA Humane Law Enforcement work in Lancaster County is supported by the Humane League of Lancaster."
