Louisville agency seizes nearly 80 cats and dogs from home

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Louisville Metro Animal Services has seized almost 80 cats and dogs from a Jefferson County home.

WAVE-TV (http://bit.ly/1KqefBM) almost all of the 66 dogs and 12 cats found have internal parasites or mange and many have bite wounds on their ears, legs or faces.

Animal Services officials say the animals weren’t abused, but they were neglected, with feces in their fur and throughout the house.

The agency’s Daisy Blakeman says officials are also concerned for the people living in the home.

The dogs are being kept in a garage area while they are tested for diseases. That testing will determine the level of neglect and any possible charges against the owners.
