Dogs Rescued from Cass County Find Temporary Homes

Posted: Updated:

Nearly all of the 174 dogs seized by Cass County sheriff's deputies from a Wheatland breeder have been released from a Casselton animal clinic and sent to foster homes.

Sgt. Tara Morris says just 14 dogs still need foster homes.

The dogs were seized July 10 because authorities said they were being kept in poor conditions.

Prosecutors say the dogs had no access to food or water, and no air conditioning or ventilation in hot conditions.

The dogs are not up for adoption yet because the owner is fighting to get the dogs back. A hearing is set for Tuesday.

The Casselton Veterinary Clinic says the cost of caring for the dogs since their seizure has topped $100,000.

About $33,000 has been raised through a public fund.

If you'd like to help donations can be made at any Bremer Bank.
