PRINCETON, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities have rescued more than a dozen dogs abandoned in a condemned home in Princeton.

WVVA-TV (http://bit.ly/1a4R1Gu) reports that the city and the Mercer County Animal Shelter removed 15 dogs from the home on Monday. Neighbors had been feeding the dogs periodically and giving them water since they were abandoned about two weeks ago.

Princeton code enforcement director Bill Buzzo says the city had to follow due process before the dogs could be removed from the home, including obtaining a search warrant.

Resident Arnold Palmer says neighbors are happy that the dogs have been rescued.

The dogs will be held at the shelter until they are ready for adoption.
