The Bradley County SPCA says they rescued 237 dogs from a home which they say was being operated as a puppy mill.

Some dogs were only hours or days old, and many were fighting for life, crammed in -- five to a cage.

One volunteer says the dogs are unhealthy, scared and need a home.

"All of the dogs were living in small kennels, haven't seen affection. Just handling them tonight you can tell they're scared and overwhelmed and not giving them a happy ending to all of this is just an injustice to them," said Charles Brown with the Pet Placement Center.

No charges have been filed in this case but the investigation is ongoing.
