As of Friday, the dogs were doing well and receiving needed care. The shelter said the animals needed a special and expensive diet and that donations are always appreciated, especially hoses, bleach, laundry detergent and nitrile exam gloves.

The owners and employees of the business were not present at the time of the search warrant but have been identified and the case will be forwarded to the county district attorney, police said.
