DACC rescues 96 animals from 2 Lake Los Angeles homes

ANTELOPE VALLEY, Calif.

DACC officials were tipped by an anonymous caller who reported an excessive amount of animals were living on the two properties in deplorable conditions.

"The dogs and cats were scared and had varied states of medical and temperamental issues, requiring patience and extra compassion to help them through this," said DACC Director Marcia Mayeda.

The animals are being held as evidence and being cared for by the DACC Veterinary Team.

The investigation remains ongoing, but the female resident of the property was arrested and is facing animal cruelty charges.

The public was urged to report cases of animal cruelty, abuse, neglect or illegal fighting by contacting DACC officials at (661) 940-4191 or (562) 940-6898.
