MUNCIE, Ind. (May 6, 2015)– Muncie Animal Shelter personnel removed several dogs and puppies from a residence Wednesday.

Phil Peckinpaugh with the animal shelter said American bulldogs and puppies are being removed from a house in the 3900 block of North Nebo Road. Forty-six live dogs were rescued; 18 dead puppies were found in the refrigerator of the home.

A lot of the rescued dogs needed immediate medical attention.

The homeowner is a hobby breeder and collector, according to officials. They have been to the home numerous times.

“It shocked us,” said neighbor Vicki Martin. “I wouldn’t think he’d have puppies in the freezer.”

“I’ve seen a lot of really bad things and this is definitely the worst I’ve ever seen,” said Peckinpaugh. “I don’t know when someone crosses over in their life when they think it’s OK to live like this or OK to treat animals like this. One of dogs, part of its face was completely ripped of.”
