Nearly 100 dogs seized at house in Orange; residents cited for alleged animal-cruelty

by in News

Nearly 100 dogs were found Thursday at a large home inside a gated-community in Orange, prompting an hours-long effort to remove them.

Video from the scene showed Orange County Animal Care officials, outfitted in hazardous-materials suits, removing animals from the home in the 3800 block of East Woodbine Avenue.

Orange police said they were contacted by Animal Care officials around 2:20 p.m. A watch commander said no arrests had been made as of early evening, but the home had been red-tagged, meaning it cannot be inhabited.

Reports from the scene indicated the residents of the home were given animal-cruelty citations.

There was no immediate word on conditions inside the home, or on the condition of the animals.
