NYSSA — The last five of the 43 Yorkie/Terriers and other dogs seized from a Weiser home in August have either been adopted or are in foster care.

The adult dogs and puppies ended up at Ani-Care Animal Shelter Inc. on Oregon Highway 201 after police seized them from Weiser resident Kimberly L. Anderson.

Police seized the dogs after they went to Anderson’s home to check on the condition of her husband. Police said in an affidavit that the dogs lived in unhealthy conditions.
Anderson was charged with 37 counts of cruelty to animals, a misdemeanor. Anderson pleaded not guilty.

The dogs were turned over to Ani-Care after they were seized and the shelter was eventually granted legal possession.

Kim Hanson, an Ani-Care director, said three of the remaining five dogs were adopted during the weekend. Two more are in foster . . .
