COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - More than two dozen dogs were reportedly rescued from an apartment in Colorado Springs according to the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR).

HSPPR sent out the details of the case on Thursday. Animal Law Enforcement officers were called about a situation where too many Chihuahuas were living in one apartment. The officers arrived at the apartment on Wednesday and found 30 dogs living in crates in a garage. The owner had just been evicted.

“Having 30 dogs in one residence is not only bad for the animals and humans involved, but also against the law in Colorado Springs, where the owner was living,” HSPPR wrote in a release. After speaking with officers about his options, their owner surrendered 26 of his dogs to HSPPR. “He kept four of the Chihuahuas, which put him in compliance with the legal limit.”

The humane society believes most of the animals are medically healthy. HSPPR believes most of the dogs will be available for adoption as early as next week!
