Six Mastiffs Rescued from Home in Aurora

AURORA, Mo- Six adult Mastiff dogs were rescued Thursday afternoon.

The Humane Society and the Aurora Animal Control teamed up to rescue the animals from a property.

According to police in the area,  the owner of the dogs relocated out of state and left her property and care of the animals to her adult son.  When she had not heard from her son for several days, she alerted authorities.  

The Humane Society later found out that the owner was a breeder of show dogs.

When crews got to the home, they found four dogs living in an overgrown backyard with no access to food or water, and two additional dogs, found inside the home with no food or water, and severely underweight.  The other dogs also are underweight and some are suffering from skin infections.
 
The dogs will be transported to the Humane Society of Missouri's Best Buddy Pet Center in Maryland Heights for treatment and care.
 
The animals were removed from the property under a warrant obtained by the Aurora Police Department.
