CONWAY, S.C. (AP) — Two people have been arrested in South Carolina after police found nearly a dozen animals on their property in poor condition.

News outlets reported that Horry County police removed 11 dogs from the home near Conway after finding them chained and lacking food and clean water.

Officers found a number of the dogs with heavy logging chains attached to their collars.

Several of the dogs appeared to be emaciated and one had an injured leg. The dogs have been taken to the Horry County Animal Shelter for treatment.

Twenty-five-year-old Destiny Nauticia Freeman and 35-year-old Peter Freeman have been charged with 11 counts of ill treatment of animals.
