A call about a dog walking along a rooftop led to the seizure of 50 dogs and one cat from two different locations in Orangeburg County, SC. All the animals were taken into protective care and appeared to be malnourished and some were suffering from mange. Harold Young, Orangeburg County Administrator, said, “What they found were the dogs were being held in two different locations. Some of these are actually going to the veterinarian tomorrow to receive medical care.”

A search warrant led to a 5-hour seizure of the animals. “Photos were taken of the deplorable conditions these animals suffered,” an Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office incident report states. “No food was accessible to the animals and the area was covered in feces.”

There have been no charges filed yet but the case remains open. The owner declined to comment publicly but Animal Control Officers were familiar with the owner.
