The Mohave County Sheriff's Office removed 17 dogs from a home in Kingman Monday.
Animal Control Officers received a phone call from a concerned citizen about an animal problem. The reporting party advised a house near her child’s bus stop had a number of dogs that were getting out and was concerned for the children in the neighborhood.
Animal Control Officers responded to the residence in the 3900 block of Hearne Avenue and made contact with the homeowner, who advised his wife was living at the property while he stayed at another residence. He advised his wife was ill and he wasn’t aware of how many dogs were on the property.
He requested the assistance of Animal Control Officers to trap the dogs so they could be taken to a shelter. A total of 17 dogs of various breeds and ages were successfully and safely removed from the property and transported to a local shelter.
