HONOLULU (AP) - The owners of an Oahu animal shelter are each facing more than 300 counts of animal cruelty after hundreds of dogs were rescued from the shelter in October.

The Hawaiian Humane Society cited David Moore and his mother, June Moore, on Friday.

Humane Society representatives in October seized 310 dogs from the Friends for Life shelter that were found covered with feces and urine and without access to food or water.

KHON-TV reported that David Moore was arrested at the time but released pending further investigation.

Attorney Paul Cunney is representing the Moore family. He says his clients did not abuse the animals and that they will fight the citation.

About 200 of the dogs seized from the no-kill shelter in Makaha are now living with foster families.
