    Forty-two dogs were rescued from a puppy mill in Florida after they were discovered covered in feces and infections.

    Officers raided the breeding center in Venice, Sarasota County, where the animals were living in deplorable conditions.

    Jan White, of Little Dog Rescue, told WOFL, "I'm not sensitive to the dogs anymore so I thought, but once we got in there I was in tears. You look at their little faces and you know they can't speak for themselves and they want someone to take them home and hug them. This is probably a situation where they started breeding and it got out of control and 360 dogs later it was time to give them up."

    The dogs were taken to animal hospitals in central Florida for care and will be put for adoption once they have recovered.

    Clay Glenn, of the East Orlando Animal Hospital, said, "This is pretty significant neglect, not things we would expect to be going on in today's society."
