BLACKSTONE – An extremely malnourished bloodhound loaded with fleas and covered with sores, and a young unspayed, flea-bitten cat so weak it could barely walk were also living among the filth and vermin at 23 St. Paul St. where the bodies of three infants were discovered among feces, maggots and dirty diapers last week.

Four living children, aged between 6 months and 13 years, were also found living amid the squalor.

Both animals were rescued and are now at the Medfield Animal Shelter, where they are awaiting adoption.
