29 Dachshunds and 1 Pomeranian Rescued from New Hampshire Home

They are as cute as can be, but covered with fleas.  29 Dachshunds and 1 Pomeranian were rescued from a Deerfield, New Hampshire home on September 17th.  The dogs were voluntarily given up, and some may be available for adoption today.  Excerpt from the Union Leader:

Thirty dogs have been rescued from a Brown Road home that an investigating police officer described as “not a liveable condition for people or animals.”
Deerfield police officer Mike Lavoie said someone looking for a lost dog saw a group of four or five dogs inside cages underneath a tarp-covered carport.
Lavoie said between 10 and 15 dogs were found in a camper on the property while the remaining were found inside the house.
“The whole place was covered with animal waste and fleas,” said Steve Sprowl of the New Hampshire Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals (NHSPCA).
