DAYTON — Four dogs were seized from two Dayton homes after officers responded to an animal complaint on Dustin Street Monday night.

“The four dogs located on Dustin Street were seized by our officers and removed to the Humane Society of Greater Dayton,” Dayton police said. “There is an investigation being done by a Humane Agent in relation to one of the animals. There is a separate investigation being done by the Dayton Police Department regarding the other three dogs.”

Photos of the dogs, which were seized from the 900 block of Dustin around 3:30 p.m., were posted on social media and shared hundreds of times.

“We want to thank everyone that within the past 24 hours has reached out to us regarding some dogs that were in danger at a home in Dayton,” The Humane Society of Greater Dayton said in a statement Tuesday, “We appreciate all of you who are our eyes and ears in the community when it comes to neglectful circumstances.”

The Humane Society said once they were notified of the situation they were able to send a humane agent to the scene to assist.

“As a no-kill animal welfare agency, please rest assured that the dogs are now safe and receiving the care and attention they need,” the Humane Society said.

It was not immediately clear whether anyone would be facing criminal charges in connection to the case.

Once the dogs are found to be healthy they will be made available for adoption, the Humane Society said.
