Animal protection groups were called to an Oppenheim dog-rescue operation Wednesday to begin removing 97 dogs from a facilty designed for 25.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, based in New York City, and the Montgomery County SPCA were examining and assessing the dogs today.

Jeff Eyre, northeast director of the ASPCA field investigations and rescue, said some of the dogs taken from “Help a Hound Rescue” appear to be underweight while others have skin conditions and assorted other medical problems, according to a news release.

A number of other animal organizations have joined the effort to house the dogs until they can be placed.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Department called in the animal protection groups to address the situation at the Oppenheim facility.
