Plans for Tuesdays Stone County dog seizure done in one day

STONE COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - Planning the seizure of more than 100 dogs earlier in the week in Stone County came together in one day.

What normally takes weeks to put together had to happen in immediately because the severity of the conditions the dogs were living in were life threatening. Lydia Sattler, State Director for the Humane Society of the United States, was able to make it happen by asking for help from several agencies and animal advocates.

Sattler also credits the Stone County Sheriff's Department for their past in the rescue.

"They are amazing, they take every call seriously and investigate every call," said Sattler. "If they see anything illegal or inhumane they act on it. They have such a compassionate and caring group of people that work there."

It took the team more than 10-hours to round up all the dogs.
