MERCER COUNTY (WVVA) More than 20 dogs are taken from a home in Mercer County during an eviction.

Deputies with the Mercer County Sheriff's Office and Animal Control Officers were involved in the relocation of the 15 adult dogs and 8 puppies. The home is located off of Airport Road.

According to Animal Control Officer Elizabeth Moorehead, the homeowners had not paid their mortgage for more than a year. Authorities tell WVVA the homeowners were given several months to make arrangements for the dogs.

The conditions of the home required those involved to wear oxygen masks and tanks during the removal of the dogs.

The animals are now in the care of the Mercer County Animal Shelter.
