According to Saturday's publication of the Daily Press, the owner/operator of a California-based German shepherd rescue agency has been found guilty of animal control code violations.

A judge found Mary Ryan, of German Shepherd Angels Rescue in Apple Valley, guilty of violating municipal codes, including “dog limits” and the “disposition of dead animals.”

According to a press release from the city of Apple Valley, 27 dogs were seized from Ryan's rental home in October 2013, and that number exceeded the allowed number of dogs which is only 4 for a single-family residential home.

Per the release, the judge also denied a request by Ryan’s attorney to return the dogs to his client.

The dogs which were seized from Ryan's residence were turned over to another rescue agency on Feb. 16.

Gina Schwin-Whiteside, Animal Services Manager said:

These dogs had been kenneled since early October, and we wanted them to begin their journey into permanent loving homes as quickly as possible,

The rescue is paying to have the dogs spayed/neutered and providing any necessary training to make them adoptable.
