On a ten-acre farm located on 20010 East State Rd. in Manatee County, Fla., Wednesday morning, the Manatee Sheriff's Office, the State Attorney's Office, Department of Agriculture and other legal organizations descended upon Napier's Log Cabin Horse and Animal Sanctuary with a search warrant reports MySunCoast.com.

The no-kill 501(c)3 animal rescue located in Bradenton, had over 300 animals on the premises; authorities reported 250 dogs, 60 to 80 cats, and 10 horses, goats, and chickens.

A spokesperson for the Manatee Sheriff's Office stated the animals were living in horrible conditions. The family's home was deemed unsafe.

An investigation began in December after multiple complaints of sick animals.

The owners were not at home during the raid; no charges have been levied, however the owners may face counts of animal cruelty and fraud.

Other rescues are now pitching in to help with feeding the horses and other animals. Some of the dogs have been removed from the premises also.

Veterinarians were present to help assess the condition of the animals.

The last post on the organization's Facebook page was Jan. 29 asking for donations.

The investigation moves forward.
