Dozens of dogs seized in raid near Cincinnati

Animal control officers in Adams County, Ohio are investigating after seizing dozens of dogs from two homes there.

Officers were called to make the raid on Monday, March 29, 2010 at a home on Main Street in West Union, which is about 70 mile east of Cincinnati. Neighbors complained of filthy conditions and dogs running loose. 

10 dogs were taken from the home on Main Street. Officers say they took about 54 dogs from a second home in a rural part of Adams County, called Lynx. Police also say they found dead dogs in the homes.  A rescuer was bitten during the raid but suffered minor injuries.

One of the animal's owner apparently told authorities he was trying to save  up enough money to cremate the deceased pets

Officals say the animal owner in Lynx has been cooperative but is upset with the investigator's work.

No charges have been filed.
