Twenty-three dogs were seized from a residence in Steele City Friday morning after the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department received a report of possible animal neglect.
The sheriff's department received a report of possible animal neglect on Wednesday at the Steele City residence and deputies responded to check on the complaint.
According to a release from Jefferson County Sheriff Nels Sorensen, deputies found a large number of dogs at the residence and deemed the conditions unfit for the animals and the resident of the house.
The resident of the house found other accommodations, while the sheriff's department contacted the Capital Humane Society in Lincoln and the Nebraska Humane Society in Omaha.
Friday morning, officials from the two humane societies arrived in Steele City and took possession of 18 lab and mixed lab dogs.
Five additional lab puppies were taken to the Fairbury dog pound by the sheriff's department.
According to the sheriff's department, all 23 of the dogs are available for immediate adoption.
Sorensen's release also stated reports are being forwarded to the Jefferson County Attorney for consideration of criminal charges.
