I just seen a post stating these people were back home and that they have acquired more animals since they got out of jail 😞 I'm truly hoping that is not the case

Thank you doc for being the amazing caring person you are.

Thank you Doc for sharing hopefully they get what they deserve!


Thank you for sharing this Doc.

Thank you , Dr. for sharing this.

Thank you for sharing Doc.

Great news!

Im glad they caught them!!

Thank you Dr Bracken for being there and assisting in this event. I’ve been following all the rescues that have assisted in helping these poor babies and am happy to say that one of these babies was adopted by my sister and brother-in-law. I hope these horrible people will be monitored throughout their lives to prevent any other animals from ending up in their possession.

$1 million straight bail is exactly what they deserve. They shouldn't be around any animals ever again. Thank you for sharing.

I'm glad they didn't allow age to deter them from filing the charges. I don't care how old you are you do not do this to animals. If it gets out of hand you ask for help. No excuse should allow them out of these charges.

Smalls and Diddy say Thank you!!!

Beyond sad this happened. Thank you for sharing! A million is still not enough…

They deserve the same treatment they gave those poor helpless animals.

About Damn Time!!

Thanks for posting this.

As horrid as this was for these poor animals, hooray for the justice system!!!!

Good. Hopefully they spend the rest of their life in prison. Each felony count is up to 10 yrs in prison. Hopefully they get it.

I just spoke with the mother of the DJ and he ordered 1million dollars bail for each.

This is why only breeder's should be allowed to sell animals. The breeder's should be heavily regulated and taxed

Hope there found guilty on all counts wish they could be treated how they treated those lil ones
