Allentown-area kennel surrenders 80 purebred dogs

SLATINGTON (AP) — A Lehigh County kennel has turned over 80 purebred dogs to animal shelters. The owners of Dragonsden Kennels in Washington Township surrendered them after inspectors found dozens of malnourished dogs in a basement.

The Animal Rescue League of Berks County took the dogs. The league kept 55 and distributed the others among area rescue groups and shelters. A woman at the kennel said she could not answer questions about the dogs.
