Two RSPCA NSW inspectors executed a search warrant at the Central West property at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 24.
Due to the size of the operation, six inspectors, two RSPCA NSW veterinarians and two animal transport officers attended the property and assessed the animals.
The inspectors seized 79 dogs and puppies requiring varying degrees of veterinary treatment into RSPCA NSW custody.
