On Tuesday, police in Hernando County, Florida, discovered several dogs and puppies locked inside of a storage unit. Now, the authorities want to find out who they belong to. As reported by Bay News 9, a tip to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office led animal control officials to a storage facility in Brooksville.
Officers followed the sound of barking to one unit which contained seven dogs. The dogs, ranging in age from six-to-eight-weeks, up to adult, were locked inside of metal cages.
Though there was no ventilation in the storage unit, the dogs and puppies appeared to be in good health. A veterinarian determined that they had not been locked away for an extended period of time. All of the abandoned dogs were taken to Hernando County Animal Services – the authorities are hoping for tips which will lead them to the dogs’ owner.
The unit that the dogs were discovered in was not rented to anyone and was “supposed to be” vacant. Anyone with information is asked to reach out to the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office at 352-754-6830.
