Dogs-01

Bristol, Virginia, police seized from this home Friday evening about three dozen dogs that officers said were living in deplorable conditions.

BRISTOL, Va. — Nearly one month after 32 dogs were seized from a home in Bristol, Virginia, six dogs are currently available for adoption.

On May 17, the Bristol Virginia Police Department seized the dogs, which were living in “deplorable conditions,” from a home on Dunlap Street, according to Officer Josh Slagle. The dogs were infested with fleas and living in a home where feces had coated the floors, he added.

Last weekend, the animal shelter adopted a majority of the dogs to local residents. By Friday, Animal Shelter Manager Deena Bouton said six dogs remained available. They are all male and range in age 1-10 years old, she said.

An additional two dogs will be available on June 18 at 11 a.m.

Anyone with questions about adopting the dogs can call 276-645-3714.
