RUTHERFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Dozens of dogs were rescued and a man accusing of operating a puppy mill surrendered Thursday.

The dogs arrived safely at the Humane Society of Charlotte after being removed from three different homes in Rutherford County.

The Rutherford County Sheriff’s office made the disturbing discovery Monday after receiving several anonymous tips.

But when they returned with a warrant, most of the dogs were gone. Investigators learned the owner had moved them to other areas of the county.
