The number of animals rescued from a Solon, Maine, property after Maine Animal Welfare authorities determined that they needed urgent care has increased from an estimated 80 to 100.

As per reports yesterday, the property houses R-N-D Kennels which is owned by Donna Noyes. As per its website, which has since been updated to “under-construction” status with no information, the kennel has been breeding rough-coat collies since 2004.

As per a statement on the police agency website, the animals, which included dogs, cats, chickens and horses, were relocated to an emergency shelter after local law enforcement and humane agents served a search warrant on the property.

According to state authorities, the investigation remains ongoing and additional charges are possible.

There should always be charges against anyone who neglects or abuses animals.

While in state custody, the animals will be given medical and behavioral evaluations and needed care. Once custody is determined by the court, new homes for the animals may be found. Animal Welfare will work with animal sheltering partners across the state to find new homes for the animals.

How to help:

Many animal shelters and County Animal Response Teams are assisting in the care of these animals while in state custody. Donations can be dropped off at local animal shelters. Needed items include pads and blankets, towels, sheets, dog toys, paper towels, cleaning supplies and dog food and treats. Anyone interested in helping animals in their community should inquire with their local animal shelter.

The following are some of the animal welfare organizations and shelters that are assisting with this case and need donations:
