Officials seize 15 dogs from SW Ohio property

HILLSBORO, Ohio (AP) — Officials concerned about living conditions for dozens of dogs at a southwest Ohio property have removed 15 dogs and want court guidance on what should happen to about 80 others.

Officials tell the Times-Gazette in Hillsboro ( ) that investigators found more than 100 dogs in inadequate conditions Tuesday at Cares About Life Rescue outside of Hillsboro, about 55 miles east of Cincinnati. Sheriff’s deputies and animal cruelty investigators returned Thursday with a search warrant and removed some of the dogs.

Those were placed in foster homes or the local dog pound. Dozens more were documented.

Highland County Sheriff Ron Ward said he expected animal cruelty charges against the site’s operator. He says it appears she couldn’t properly care for so many animals, though her intentions may have been good.
