30 Greyhounds Were Just Found In An Empty Lot, Too Weak To Stand Upright


More than 30 greyhounds (26 adults and six puppies) were discovered at the beginning of February, in a vacant lot located in the Aude region of the south of France.

ASEMA (Animal Abuse Investigative Service Association) was alerted by a nearby resident who reported having seen a number of canines straying near his property in an alarmingly thin state.


After rushing over, the association discovered a horrifying spectacle: certain dogs were skin and bones and were so weak, they couldn't even walk or stand.

The greyhounds were immediately taken into custody and sent to multiple shelters in the South of France while an investigation was opened. A charge of mistreatment was filed against the owner of the land.
