MIO, Mich. (AP) - Four family members are charged after officials say more than 50 dogs were seized from a home in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula during an animal cruelty investigation.

MLive.com reports Bradford Quick, Pennie Quick, Noralea Quick and Danielle Quick are charged with cruelty or abandonment of 10 or more animals and cruelty or abandonment of four to 10 animals.

Their lawyer James Schmier tells The Associated Press he couldn’t comment Friday because he hadn’t yet received information from the investigation.

A Jan. 26 hearing is scheduled.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says the dogs were removed in December from the home in the Oscoda County community of Mio, about 165 miles northwest of Detroit. The ASPCA says it’s believed the dogs were being bred for sale.
