Authorities seize more than 30 German Shepherds from Putnam Co.
At least 30 German Shepherds found in deplorable conditions were seized on Friday by MPs and animal protection and control officers.
PUTNAM COUNTY, Ind. – More than two dozen dogs seized Friday in west-central Indiana need a place to stay, police said.
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and the County Animal Care and Control Department are seizing about 30 German Shepherds who were found in “deplorable conditions” during a welfare check on Friday.

The sheriff’s office appealed for help on Facebook, saying they needed to find a place to temporarily place the animals to be checked, as the county animal shelter and other area shelters are at capacity. .
Putnam County Animal Care and Control is also asking for help gathering supplies for the dogs, including kennels to temporarily house them at the shelter. Financial donations can be made through the department’s Venmo account, and an Amazon page has been created to purchase food and supplies.
The sheriff’s office said the funds raised will be distributed fairly “to ensure the dogs receive as much care as possible.”
