30 Dachshunds Rescued From Poor Conditions in North Carolina

Meet three of about 30 dachshunds who have been rescued from deplorable conditions from a kennel in Plymouth, North Carolina. The dachshunds will be nursed back to health by Ann Robinson, who owns and operates Sand Hill Beagles Rescue in neighboring Pinetops, NC.
Robinson, 57, described the dogs as being held in "rabbit cages," with many of the spaces suspended in air, with the dogs stepping on chicken wire. She also said several of the spaces the dogs were being kept had high-wattage light bulbs inside with limited ventilation.
Some of the dogs suffered burn marks from the bulbs with the spaces too cramped for the grown dogs' elongated bodies to stretch out, Robinson said.
