On August 17, 2019, at approximately 11:21 hours, Eastern Adams Regional Police say they were asked to assist the Adams County SPCA Enforcement Officer on serving a search warrant on the 300 block of Mt. Misery Road.

Police say the owner of the residence had signed over 15 dogs to the SPCA and were in need of medical attention. The SPCA reported that another 23 dogs and a cat needed to be taken away. Authorities say a search warrant was secured because the SPCA believed resident would get mad and not let them take the dogs. 

Eastern Adams Regional Police and the SPCA Enforcement Officer say they arrived at the 300 block of Mt. Misery Road and went to the front door. According to police the resident was outside with his son and became very upset. At this time, the execution of the warrant was performed.

Eastern Adams Regional Police say they observed as the SPCA took out 23 dogs all in very bad condition and a black cat. Patrolman Mulder reported he went inside the house and observed that the living conditions were very poor, and the house looked unlivable. The smell was very strong from the dog feces and urine. The entire house was a mess with maggots on the floor and food spilled everywhere. Authorities say the bathroom was not working at all.

Eastern Adams Regional Police assisted SPCA with removal of the animals and made sure they were safe. Police say the Oxford Township Code Enforcement Officer will be notified about the house and yard conditions.

The Adams County SPCA is asking for help to care for the dogs and released the following statement:
