More than 200 animals found on Ala. property

GORDON, AL (AP) - Sheriff's deputies and Humane Society volunteers say they rescued more than 200 animals from a woman's property near Gordon.

Houston County Sheriff Andy Hughes says deputies and Humane Society workers arrived at Dirty Sally's Pet Pals Monday morning and found at least 180 dogs and up to 50 cats.

Humane Society Public Information officer Jordan Crump says the animals were living in deplorable conditions.

Crump says some of the animals are suffering from skin ailments like mange, while others are malnourished and some have untreated wounds.

United Animal Nations, a California-based nonprofit organization, is operating a temporary shelter at the National Peanut Festival fairgrounds. Hughes says no charges had been filed as of Monday.
