Authorities from the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control of (DACC), estimate that the criminal investigation against the owner of in a house in Baldwin Park, will conclude this week.
Authorities have not ruled out the possibility of filing animal cruelty charges against the former owner. The animals were rescued after being found locked in cages inside a garage.
On November 15, officers from Baldwin Park DACC searched the 3300 block of Frazier Street, after receiving a tip that there were animals in unsanitary conditions.
According to authorities, the animals were found without food or water and some of them required medical attention. In addition to the 15 bulldogs, two adult mixed breed pitbulls were found in the house.
In late November, authorities determined that the animals could not be put up for adoption, so they were sent to a rescue center dedicated to this type of breed.
"All the Bulldogs have been placed with Southern California Bulldog Rescue, a nationally known and respected organization devoted to this breed of dog. Many of the dogs will require continued medical care." said Aaron Reyes, spokesman for the DACC.
"The criminal case continues. Our investigators are carefully preparing the case, which is expected to be completed by mid week," he added.
