COVENTRY, R.I. (WLNE) — After being removed from living in “unsanitary” conditions, Coventry police said 22 dogs are now ready for adoption.

Police said that at about 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 1, they responded to a home on Plainfield Pike to check on the well-being of several dogs.

Chief Frederick Heise said because of their living conditions, the owner of the dogs agreed to give up them up to Coventry Animal Control.

No further information on that case was immediately released.

The dogs range in age and are Chinese crested and Chihuahua mixes. They are in good health, Heise said.

“The cost of adoption will be their current medical expenses and a deposit to spay or neuter the dog,” said the chief.

“A vet came to look at them, they all seemed fairly healthy,” said¬†Carolyn Lacombe, animal control supervisor for the town of Coventry. “They’ve all been groomed by a local groomer, Dog House on Sandy Bottom Rd. did it to help us out, so they’re all ready to go, ready to be adopted.”

Anyone with questions about adopting the dogs should call the Coventry Animal Control at 401-822-9106.
