A 64-year-old breeder, Sylvia Penetta, was arrested and charged with animal cruelty in Middletown, New York. On a tip, the police raided her home and found 76 dogs, most who were Rottweilers, who she had been breeding and selling. The conditions were awful enough to seize the dogs, two being injured. Penetta was selling the dogs on her website, Karousel Kennels. Some of the most serious dogs were taken by local rescues, but area shelters are not equipped to handle such a load intake. Pets Alive Rescue, a local organization, has offered to take the rest of the dogs when the judge orders the seizure. Until then, the dogs stay, apparently . Here is their website: Pets Alive Animal Sanctuary, Middletown, NY, Hudson Valley.
