KALAMAZOO, Mich (FOX 17)—Two raids on Kalamazoo County locations resulted in the arrests of two men and the rescue of 46 pit bull-like dogs Friday and Monday.
The animals were taken to be cared for by the Humane Society of the United States, which declined to reveal where the dogs were taken or order to protect them. Volunteers were working on nursing the dogs back to health.
Both locations had rings in which it is believed dog fights were held.
On Friday, police moved in on an address on KL Avenue between 7th and 8th Streets. There they removed 32 dogs and arrested a man.
On Monday, they raided 321 Darling Street in Kalamazoo Township, taking 14 dogs and arresting another man.
The Darling Street property was in neighborhood but backed up to some woods, giving it a level of isolation.
A video provided by the Humane Society of the United States showed chained dogs with varied kinds of shelter, from wooded shack-like structures to barrels. Voluteers seen carrying the dogs away.
