Neglecting an animal is also a kind of animal abuse. Such animal abuse was faced by many dogs found in terrible conditions in a multimillion-dollar home located in Southern California. The officials got the news from an anonymous tip. The OC Animal Care and Orange Police Department arrived at this luxury home and rescued more than 140 Maltese dogs and Shih Tzus. Surprizing, the whole home had the smell of feces and urine all over. Even the rescuers had to wear hazmat suits while they were rescuing the dogs found in terrible conditions.
