MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - Twenty-five puppies have been seized from a business in Martinsburg amid complaints of cruel conditions.
The Berkeley County Sheriff's Department and animal control agents seized the puppies this week at a business called WV Puppies. Officials said they served a search warrant on the business after receiving complaints the puppies were being held under inhumane conditions. There were also allegations the animals were improperly transported across state lines.
Media outlets are reporting that the individuals making the allegations have refused to identify themselves.
Officials acted after they saw a van with out-of-state tags delivering crates of puppies to the business.
A court hearing on the seizure has been scheduled for March 20.
