An animal rescue group is caring for more than a dozen malnourished, flea-ridden dogs who were rescued from a home in Holyoke on Thursday.
Animal control officers reportedly pulled 15 dogs from a house on Newton Street, one of which was dead.
The rest were taken in by the Thomas O'Connor Animal Adoption Center in Springfield.
Officials say charges are possible, but the house where the dogs were found was condemned and may have been lived in by a squatter.
