11 Dogs, 3 Cats Seized During Ansonia Animal Cruelty Investigation: Police – NBC Connecticut

Ansonia police arrested two men on animal cruelty charges, seized more than a dozen animals and said two of the dogs they found during an investigation at their home were so sick they had to be euthanized.

Police discovered the animals while conducting an unrelated investigation.

While searching the Condon Drive home, they found several emaciated dogs that police said were in urgent need of medical attention, and also seized 11 dogs and three cats, according to police.

They also found a dead dog and said an autopsy would be performed to determine what killed the dog.

The few surviving dogs were taken to a veterinary clinic, and a veterinarian determined that two of them needed to be euthanized.

Police said several other dogs were still being treated.

A 30-year-old man living at the residence was charged with eight counts of animal cruelty, seven counts of failure to comply with dog ownership requirements and seven counts of failure to comply with rabies control ordinances.

He posted a $10,000 bond and has a court date in Derby Superior Court on June 20.

A 26-year-old man who also lives in the home was charged with animal cruelty, failure to comply with dog ownership requirements and failure to comply with rabies control ordinances.

He posted a $1,000 bond and has a court date in Derby Superior Court of June 14, 2024.

Police said the investigation was continuing.
