Officials take 28 animals from home

July 13, 2011

Anderson pet-control officials confiscated 19 dogs and nine cats from 87-year-old Clara West on Tuesday after neighbors complained about the stench coming from her home. City officials evicted West after they found feces and urine covering all areas of the house in the 2000 block of Kerrwood Drive. The home may need to be demolished. Some of the animals might be euthanized, but officials are hoping to find new owners for most of them.
