DENVER (AP) - Dozens of dogs seized in southern Colorado’s Costilla County as part of an abuse and neglect case have been taken to three Front Range animal shelters.

The Denver Post reports (https://bit.ly/1fy4KTN ) 42 shepherd-mix dogs that were seized Jan. 15 are now being cared for so they can be adopted. The Dumb Friends League says the dogs, which had been bound with chains that left marks around their necks, were severely underweight and had been kept without adequate shelter.

Bob Rohde, president and CEO of the Dumb Friends League, says “the care these animals are receiving is greatly overdue and severely needed.”

The dogs will not be available until medical and behavioral treatments are complete.
