20 Puppies, 4 Dogs Rescued From Randolph Home By Animal Rescue League – CBS Boston
BOSTON (CBS) – Four dogs and twenty puppies were rescued from a Randolph home after police found unsanitary living conditions there earlier this month. Urie Louissaint, 28, of Randolph, is now charged with animal cruelty, according to a joint statement by the Randolph Police and the Animal Rescue League of Boston.
The officers were first called to the house on Bossi Avenue on August 4 after it was reported that a man was threatening a person who was doing work in the residence. Louissaint agreed to let the officers in, and they “found the interior in a state of misery with animal waste.”

The dogs and puppies “allegedly lived in unsanitary conditions without adequate access to food and water”.
The Boston Animal Rescue League law enforcement agency was called in to remove the animals from the situation. A total of one male and three female dogs aged around two to four years and 20 puppies aged two to four months – all pit bull-type dogs – were taken. Some of the dogs have an umbilical hernia that requires surgery before adoption and some of the animals have heart murmurs. A four month old puppy has a broken leg so he will stay with the ARL until he is healed.

The puppies are not currently available for adoption. You will live with foster families for a few more weeks. The ARL will announce when they are ready for eternity.
“Boston Animal Rescue cannot praise Randolph Police and Animal Control enough,” said Lt. Alan Borgal, ARL Law Enforcement Senior Investigator, in a statement. “Everyone involved in this situation showed a high level of professionalism, compassion and an unwavering commitment to quickly remove these animals from the house and provide them with the necessary care.”
Louissaint has been charged 24 counts of animal cruelty and threats of a crime. He was later summoned before the Quincy District Court.
