Pennsylvania State Police said seven pit bulls – three adults and four puppies – were found malnourished and abandoned at a property along Doubling Gap Road in Lower Mifflin Township on May 5.
Police served a search warrant at the property at 9 a.m. on May 5 as part of the investigation into the animal cruelty case. Police were able to remove the dogs from the property, and said the animals are currently being cared for by staff at Speranza Animal Rescue in Mechanicsburg.
Police have not indicated that charges of animal cruelty have been filed, and a call to the investigating trooper was not returned prior to press time on Tuesday.
The staff at Speranza have named the pit bulls after the seven dwarves of Disney’s “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.” According to Speranza’s Facebook page, the adult females are settling in well there, and they are in the process of finding foster homes for them.
