HANOVER, Va. (AP) - Authorities say 68 dogs found living in poor conditions have been rescued from a home in Hanover County.

Local media outlets report Hanover County Animal Control, with assistance from the Hanover County Sheriff’s Office, executed a search warrant at the property on Tuesday.

Sheriff’s deputy Karen Godfrey said in a statement Thursday that the dogs were found living in “unhealthy living conditions, both inside and outside the residence.”

As a result, Godfrey says the canines were rescued and taken to various animal shelters for safe keeping and veterinary care.

Authorities are determining charges against the dog owners.
