MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) – Rescuers say two more abandoned Chihuahuas were found wandering around West Mobile. This makes a total of almost a dozen so far that they say were abandoned and dumped by what they think is a backyard breeder.

Now people in the animal rescue community say they want tighter laws on animal cruelty in Alabama, and they want the laws enforced.

Of the ten puppies in foster homes, several were females.

An experienced operation team from the Atlanta Humane Society assisted in the rescue in Alcorn County, Mississippi.

The Humane Society says the dogs were kept in “filthy, cramped conditions and repeatedly bred for profit.”

“One dog was housed in a situation with its deceased companion,” said Dorsey.

She told Channel 2’s Liz Artz the dogs were living in feces, squalor and without enough food or water.
