Authorities said a Mississippi man has been charged with animal cruelty a day after surrendering 104 dogs to a rescue organization, but the man denied mistreating the animals.

The Humane Society of the United States and the Humane Society of South Mississippi said in a news release that the dogs were in “horrible conditions” in Tylertown with some “sharing cages with the decomposing bodies of dead dogs and puppies.”

The dogs, mostly Boston terriers, dachshunds, Yorkshire terriers and Chihuahuas, were taken on May 20 to the Humane Society of South Mississippi in Gulfport after the owner signed them over.
