According to a news release from the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office, deputies initially removed two dozen dogs that were in poor medical condition and returned to the property to rescue the remaining animals. A majority of the dogs suffered from matted fur, fleas, intestinal parasites and eye issues. Of the 263 dogs, seventy have been transferred to area rescues. The rest will be moved over the next few days. The owner has not been identified yet, but criminal charges against the owner are pending.
