HUMBOLDT, Tenn. (AP) - Officials in West Tennessee say dozens of neglected dogs in a breeding facility have been seized.

WKRN-TV in Nashville ( ) says about 100 dogs were living in the facility in Gibson County about two hours west of Nashville. The Animal Rescue Corps in Washington said it assisted the county sheriff's office in seizing the animals on Wednesday.

Officials said some of the dogs had untreated eye infections, respiratory conditions, dental issues and matted fur, which was soaked in urine and caked with feces.

Rescuers said the dogs were crowded into small crates and pens, exposed to high levels of ammonia and left without enough water.
