KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Kansas City animal control workers seized 24 dogs, most of them pit bulls, from two homes in the same neighborhood.

Narcotics officers serving an arrest warrant at one home Wednesday found 18 pit bulls and a mixed-breed dog in makeshift kennels behind the home. They took another dog from inside the home and four more pit bulls from a home across the street.

The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1ass4EO ) the dogs appeared to be in good health, expect for one dog being kept indoors.

An animal control supervisor says the home apparently was being used to breed and train the dogs.

Animal control officers said they will cite the owner of the 20 dogs for having 16 more than allowed and for not having them spayed or neutered.
