CONCORD (KRON) — Concord Police arrested a man yesterday after finding 10 abused dogs inside a trailer that the owner admitted to using as a “mobile dog house.”
Police say some of the dogs were found in wire crates and looked to be in poor health. Another dog was found panting and appeared to have matted, wet fur.
The animals did not have access to food or water and police described the trailer as “filthy.”
Officers found a total of ten dogs — but one of the animals was dead.
Because of their poor health, two of the pups had to be euthanized. The seven other dogs are expected to live, according to police.
The owner of the trailer, Jeremiah Weberling, was arrested and charged with ten counts of felony animal cruelty.
He’s being held in county jail on $100,000 bail.
