200 dogs seized near Milk River; described as worst case of neglect AARCS has …

Suffering gaping wounds, broken bones and malnutrition, some 200 neglected dogs have been seized from a southern Alberta property, says the Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society.

According to a post on the non-profit’s Facebook Wednesday, AARCS has taken care of 60 of the canines and said it’s one of the worst cases of neglect they’ve been involved with.

The dogs, most of them emaciated, are a mix of huskies, Irish wolf hounds, malamutes and komondors and are suffering from dehydration, badly matted fur, and riddled with parasites.

Some also had serious injuries.

The animals were seized from a property near Milk River,  a town of less than 1,000 people about 300 km south of Calgary.

AARCS said Alberta SPCA is investigating and multiple rescue agencies are now trying to find homes for the dogs.
