More animals rescued in raid

Posted: Updated:

Ellensburg, WASH.--Eleven more animals have been rescued from a home in South Kittitas County.

The Ellensburg City Animal Shelter took in 60 animals from the raid, but say there may be more.

The Kittitas County Sheriff's Office is still searching and setting humane traps around the property.

The shelter manager, Paula Hake, said taking care of the animals has been tough since the shelter is small. They only have 16 dog kennels and 14 cat cages.

"We are not set to take or equipped to take this many animals but we're doing it, we're making it," said Hake. "We have a lot of good volunteers. We have now gotten the okay to adopt out the animals."

Hake was at the raid on Tuesday. She said animals were living in their own feces, and all the outdoor animals had no food or water.

The animals are now being treated for malnourishment and other medical conditions.
 
Eight dogs, some birds and a fish have been adopted so far.
