Wichita police find puppy mill, rescue nearly 20 dogs

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita police have seized 20 pit bulls from what they called a puppy mill.

Police Lt. Steve Kenney says the dogs were found Saturday inside a home in west Wichita.

Kenney says the animals were in good health and were being used for breeding. It is illegal to operate puppy mills within city limits.

The Wichita Eagle reports one dog with a microchip was returned to its owner. The other 19 dogs — seven grown adults, four young adults and eight puppies — were taken to the city’s animal control unit.

The Kansas Humane Society says the adult dogs will be up for adoption after they are spayed or neutered. The puppies will be placed in foster homes until they are 2 months old.

No one has been arrested.
