BEND, OR -- More than 30 dogs were seized after they were found in squalid conditions at a Bend property, yesterday morning. Deschutes County Sheriff's deputies executed a search warrant at the location on bend's east side, where they found the dogs stored in cages and kennels, many living in their own waste and lacking food and water. DCSO says many suffered from a range of health conditions, including tooth decay and severe emaciation.
55-year old Goldie Coats and 71-year old Sonya Henderson each face dozens of animal neglect charges ... they were cited and released, yesterday.
The dogs were removed and placed into shelter.
