Pet Safari by Renee James

Renee James who had her puppymill busted a year ago and the dogs seized, and was again busted now in March 2015 with 146 dogs.  The dogs had not been properly vaccinated.  Of course, many of the dogs are pregnant so there will be more puppies that need home soon. The Horry County Animal Care Center that has the dogs said they are only built to have a max of 250 dogs at their shelter total, so that unless homes or rescues save these dogs, some may end up having to be euthanized.

The 146 dogs that were seized around 9 am Wednesday are now at the Horry County Animal Care Center and all will soon be available for adoption.
A woman, Renee James, age 49,  charged under Horry County Ordinance 4-3 for failure to provide proper care and treatment of animals. 
Police said that James sold the dogs at Pet Safari, a Conway pet store, which she owns. She was fined $445 for the incident.
"They panic; they don't know what to do,” said Lieutenant Raul Denis with the Horry County Police Department. “They panic and freeze and try to hug the ground. It's disturbing to watch an animal that has never been on solid ground,” he added.
For hours, The Horry County Animal Care Center brought in truck loads of dogs.
In total, there were 146 dogs rescued by Horry County Police.
"It's sad to watch those animals in that conditions they don't understand what's going on. They were bred in captivity and held in cages just to bread more,” said Denis
