The humane society says that many of these beagles are puppies.

They add that they were living in unsanitary conditions, but are safe now.

The pups aren’t up for adoption just yet. For now, the humane society is focusing on getting all 51 dogs healthy.


“The moms are scared, their puppies are confused, and they all need your support,” the humane society said in a Facebook post.

Once the dogs are well enough to be adopted, the humane society says they’ll be posted on their website.
