The Outer Banks SPCA seized more than 80 animals from a residence in Wanchese late last month and is looking for donations to help with their care.

Unsafe conditions led to a warrant and investigation by Dare County Animal Services, the SPCA and the Dare County Sheriff’s Office.

Dogs, cats, chickens, turkeys, goats, geese, two ponies, one horse, a pig and other animals were seized.

“The investigation was launched after further complaints of animal cruelty were filed with the Outer Banks SPCA. Environmental conditions were extremely neglected, noxious, and unsafe leading to the removal of the animals,” an SPCA statement said.

No charges have been filed yet as the investigation continues. Staff from the offices of Environmental Health and Dare County Social Services were also on site.

The Outer Banks SPCA is working hard to meet animals needs. If you are able to do so, please consider making a contribution. Donations can be made in person at the Dare County Animal Shelter, online via www.OBXSPCA.org/donate, or mailed to: PO Box 2477; Manteo NC 27954.
