Sumner County officials have seized 68 dogs from a home in Conway Springs, and the homeowner was arrested for cruelty to animals.
Deputies found the dogs suffering from poor health, malnourishment and traumatic injuries. Three dogs were taken last week by animal control officers in Wellington to a hospital for treatment.
Deputies served a search warrant and seized 65 more dogs, ranging from puppies to adults. Several agencies have been helping to find foster homes for the dogs.
The homeowner, identified as 46-year-old Samuel Roman, was a licensed breeder who recently had his license suspended by the Kansas Department of Agriculture.
