Police remove 80 dogs from Corpus Christi home

Dozens of dogs were rescued from a Texas home Thursday.

It took Corpus Christi police and Animal Care Services workers the whole day — but when they were done, 80 dogs were removed from the home.

Officers got a search warrant to get into the property.

No word on what prompted the search.

Police say the homeowner chose to surrender most of his animals.

The 61 adult dogs and 19 puppies are being medically assessed and the city says they will be up for adoption when they are cleared.

The owner is expected in court, though it’s not clear what or how many charges he will face.
