PEGRAM, Tenn. - After
rescuing more than two dozen puppies and dogs on Saturday, officials at
Cheatham County Animal Control say they are becoming full to capacity.
"So far this
year, we've had 190 animals, since the beginning of the year to yesterday. This same time last year, we brought in 21,"
explains TJ Jordi who oversees animal control for the county.
On Saturday, officials
rescued 23 dogs, 15 of them puppies from a farm in Cheatham County. The man who
runs the farm told officials he's become a sort of "dumping ground"
for people who want to get rid of their pets and he believes it's in part
because he lives on a dead end street.
The farmer has been feeding them to keep them
healthy, but it's become overwhelming.
non-stop breeding," Jordi adds.
