51 animals seized from south side home in animal hoarding investigation

INDIANAPOLIS - Several dozen animals were removed from a far south side home Sunday after an anonymous tip alerted authorities to possible animal hoarding.

Fifty one animals were seized from two residences on Sunday from a home on Stop 11 Road near Perry Meridian High School, according to Dawn Contos of Indianapolis Animal Care and Control.

Animal control also removed several dead animals from the homes, Contos said, though none of the deceased animals were dogs or cats.

The seized animals were taken to the Indianapolis animal shelter.

No arrests were made, though charges are pending with the prosecutor's office, Contos said.
