On Wednesday, the Animal Charity of Ohio in cooperation with the Mahoning County Dog Warden, entered a vacant home filled with trash, feces and abandoned dogs and cats living in the deplorable conditions.
Humane officers and volunteers worked for hours to rescue the animals, and now the work begins. The survivors will all be assessed and medically treated accordingly.
“The deplorable conditions were excruciating to be in for the few hours that it took to rescue all of the animals. Thinking of these sweet cats and dogs living there around the clock is devastating,” the rescue organization posted on their social media page along with the heartbreaking photos.
An investigation is currently underway. This is a developing story; more details to follow.
