Thirty-five dogs were taken from a Harrison County home Thursday.

Most of them aren't able to be adopted because they haven't been handled and some can't because of their health. Deputies said the three brothers who owned the dogs will be charged with cruelty to animals.

The dogs ranged from all different ages, as old as 15 and as young as a couple months. According to the animal control officer, the dogs were well fed but not taken care of. About 15 big dogs lived under the house and were never cleaned up after. The rest lived in pens in the backyard that weren't well kept either. 5 News talked to neighbors in the area and here's what a couple had to say.

"They're nice people, but dogs have to be taken care of in a different way. 15 or 20 dogs is too many for one family to have," said a neighbor.

"I think they should at least be allowed to have three or four because other people around here have four or five. I know they do feed their animals because I've seen them go up the road with the trunk of their car open and it's packed down with big bags of dog food," said another neighbor. 

If you want to help these dogs, head over to the Harrison County Humane Society and adopt one.
