On 12/19/19 MCSO received an email and photos from PETA in reference to a report of around a dozen dogs allegedly confined inside a residence at 3814 2nd Ave NE in Bradenton. The information had been sent to PETA, describing the conditions as “ filthy and junk-ridden, home covered in feces, urine and insect infestation”.

After verifying the photos and information were from the alleged residence, deputies and Manatee Animal Services entered the property at around 7:30 am on 12/20/19 and removed 12 dogs. The animals were taken to a local veterinarian for evaluation. The variety of breeds appeared to be fed and hydrated, but there was concern about their respiratory health.

Based on the described conditions and a strong odor, Manatee County Hazmat began testing air quality around 11:20 am. By 2:05 deputies went back into the property with a search warrant to collect more evidence.

The investigation continues.
