RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Almost 50 dogs confiscated from rural residence by Riverton officials earlier this week are recovering and may soon be placed in permanent homes.

Gunda Gamble of G Bar G Veterinary Serve tells The Ranger (https://bit.ly/2qgkzO4 ) she found some of dogs brought in Thursday with medical issues such as mange, worms and malnutrition. She says it’s the group of dogs that were kept outside in cages that have the most problems.

Gamble says initially those dogs did not seem capable of rehabilitation, but are now showing signs of improvement.

Undersheriff Ryan Lee says the dogs were found on Monday. The department documented multiple dogs in a kennel without any shelter, food and a large amount of feces in the pen. It is unknown where the property owners will receive charges.
