20 Children, 18 Dogs Removed From California Home

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have removed 20 children and 18 dogs from a Southern California home that they say was uninhabitable.

San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies also arrested five women at the home Thursday on suspicion of child cruelty. Two of the women also were suspected of being under the influence of a controlled substance.

A sheriff’s statement says the Victorville home had no working electricity or gas, and there wasn’t enough food for the people living there. The statement also says that the dogs had no access to water and the carpet, walls and furniture were in disrepair. Authorities also say black mold was throughout the home.

The children ranged in age from 2 months to 17 years old.

Animal control officers took away 18 dogs. Two other dogs were dead.
