REDMOND, OR -- Deschutes County Deputies seized five dogs reported abandoned at a home northwest of Redmond, earlier this week. Law enforcement were first dispatched to the home on NW Progress Lane on Sunday, February 25, after a concerned citizen reported not seeing anyone on the property caring for the dogs in several days. Deputies looked through windows and could see several dogs inside. They tried to contact the last known resident throughout the day, but were unsuccessful.


The next day, DCSO executed a search warrant to check on the animals. They seized four pit bull-mix dogs and a Chihuahua-mix. A fifth pit bull was found deceased on the property. Investigators believe the dogs had not been fed, cared for or checked on for at least six days, prior to being seized.


Authorities later determined 41-year-old Anne Springer, of Redmond, is the owner of the dogs. She was contacted Wednesday and cited on five counts of Animal Neglect II and one count of Animal Neglect I. The seized dogs are now being cared for at Brightside Animal Center
