Hundreds of animals seized from alleged puppy mill


Kaufman County – Authorities in Kaufman County have seized more than 500 dogs and about 15 cats from an alleged puppy mill.

The Humane Society and sheriff's deputies raided the facility Tuesday. At last report, the kennel's owners have not yet been arrested or charged.

The Humane Society says it began investigating after a person appealed to the agency for dog food donations for the operation.

The kennel operated in a large metal building in a rural area of Kaufman County near the Prairieville community, about 45 miles southwest of Dallas.
