LOOGOOTEE, Ind. — No food, no water, and nowhere to hide from rain, snow, and biting wind — that’s how police are describing the puppy mill shut down Thursday in Martin County.

Donkeys, horses, and about 80 dogs were found Thursday night at a home in Loogootee.

There was no food available to the animals, and in some cases, their source of water was frozen, Martin Co. Sheriff’s deputies told WTHI-TV in Terre Haute. 

One person has been arrested, but police have not said who that person is, according to WTHI.

The Martin Co. Humane Society is currently caring for the animals, but it’s asking Hoosier pet lovers for a bit of help. 

The group is collecting monetary donations on its Facebook page. The money will be used to help keep the animals alive and get them the medical care they need.
