In a press release dated March 30, the Carlton County Sheriff's Office stated that it had received a call from an agent with the Animal Human Society in Golden Valley regarding the complaint about 20 to 30 dogs living in filthy conditions at a residence on Tower Road in Silver Township west of Moose Lake. The agent requested that a deputy assist by standing by while the complaint was investigated. The deputy responded with the agent and the agent spoke with the owners of the dogs. The owners agreed to voluntarily surrender the dogs to the Animal Human Society.

A press release from the Animal Humane Society stated, "Early yesterday morning (Wednesday, March 28) our Critical Response Team traveled to Carlton County to aid dozens of Chihuahuas living in overcrowded unsanitary conditions. Forty-one Chihuahua mixes, including tiny, unweaned puppies, were removed from the single-family home and brought to the Animal Humane Society. We need your help in giving the chihuahuas vaccinations and treatments, behavioral care and find them loving families that they deserve.

Consider making a gift at"

In an interview, Dr. Graham Brayshaw of the Animal Humane Society said the chihuahuas were in good health. Adoptions could start as early as this week for some of the dogs, while others needed behavioral training.

No charges were filed because the chihuahuas were surrendered voluntarily, press reports stated.
