St. Albans police say they rescued six
malnourished dogs from an apartment in the city.
A barking dog complaint led police to
the home on North Main Street. They obtained a search warrant and found two
adult dogs and two puppies in poor health. Two other puppies were removed from
the residence by a friend of the owners just prior to the officers' arrival.
The Franklin County Humane Society is
taking care of the other four.
Police have not identified the owners, but they expect to
file criminal charges.
