Long Island Dognapping Biz Busted

A couple discovered their missing dog for sale on a website which led police to a Medford, Long Island home where more than 50 dogs were living in deplorable conditions.

Police said the so-called rescuers were scammers running an illegal dognapping operation. Some of the dogs had tags and collars and some even have computer tracking chips in them.

The cops arrested 3 people who claimed they were animal rescuers and had 54 dogs in a 700 square-foot home. They ran an agency/website called "Lucky Fund". This fly-by-night operation was stealing dogs from their rightful owners and selling them online for profit. Read the full story here.
