An Annapolis County man has been arrested by RCMP after 28 animals were found at a puppy mill in West Dalhousie Thursday afternoon, according to Nova Scotia SPCA.

Twenty dogs, four puppies and four rabbits were seized from the property and are now receiving medical care. 

The SPCA said the dogs have severe matting and urine-stained fur. 

Charges against the property owner are pending. 

The owner had several outstanding arrest warrants, but neither SPCA or RCMP could provide more information about what those warrants relate to.
