WOLFEBORO, New Hampshire (WGME) -- Wolfeboro Police Department responded to reports of a puppy mill in New Hampshire Friday.

Police executed arrest and search warrants at 149 Warren Sands Road in Wolfeboro, where they rescued 75 Great Dane dogs from squalid conditions. Nine puppies were taken from a separate location in Bartlett.

Christina Fay, owner of De La Sang Monde Great Danes, was arrested on two counts of animal neglect and transported to Carroll County Jail where she was processed and bailed.

The Humane Society of the United States, who assisted in the intervention, report the dogs were caged inside a large house in foul conditions. There was no sign of water, and raw chicken parts were strewn around the room.

Some animals were underweight, while others had infections or irritated eyes.

The Humane Society of the United States provided medical treatment and shelter for the dogs while authorities work towards a more permanent solution.
