ROANOKE, Va. – A Roanoke animal shelter helped save more than 50 pets from a bad living situation in rural Tennessee on Friday.

Angels of Assisi stated in a Facebook post that its rescue team saved 46 dogs and 7 cats from a home “where the standards of living weren’t being met.” The animal shelter hasn’t disclosed the medical conditions of the pets but said that many have skin and eye infections.

The organization is slated to release more information regarding the animals once it conducts medical examinations.

Together, help is here.”
