TOWN OF SCHLESWIG – More than 40 animals were seized from a residence in Manitowoc County.
Officials were able to enter the residence on Rockville road in Kiel, after an individual gained access to the home and was able to confirm neglect and hoarding of animals.
Authorities found the animals in extremely poor and cluttered living conditions.
Police have received several complaints of animal neglect in the past at this particular residence.
The homeowner willingly surrendered all 17 dogs, six puppies, 18 cats, and three kittens to the Lakeshore Humane Society.
