TPD finds dogs living in “deplorable conditions”

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – During a drug search warrant the Toledo Police SWAT team and detectives found dozens of dogs living in deplorable conditions.

It happened in the 3000 block of Chase street on Thursday. It was part of an annual enforcement blitz to honor Detective Keith Dressel.

Police say the entry team found dog feces covering the inside of the home. Officers on scene described it as “the worst living conditions they have ever seen,” according to a news release.”

Five dogs ended up getting shot after TPD says they attacked officers coming into the home.

The rest of the dogs and puppies are now in the care of Lucas County Canine Care and Control.

The investigation is ongoing and, so far, no charges have been filed.
