90 dogs have been seized from animal hoarders in Harrison County. SICSA now needs help caring for the 13 dogs they took custody of.

"We will assess which ones need more help behaviorally and which ones need help medically and things like that and go from there... and then we'll put them up for adoption as soon as they're ready," says Emma Blackman-Mathis, the Kennel Facilities Manager.

The dogs were found living in sub-zero and snowy conditions. Several were chained to their dog house, others were forced to live in pens made of wood and chicken wire. Some pens even had up to six dogs inside them.

The dogs were of various mixed breed.

The owners are being served with a warrant, although there is no word yet on the charges.
