Officials Say Floyd County Man Will Not Face Charges

Floyd County officers say they're not citing or charging a man for having more than 100 dogs at his home.

Animal control officers believe Kenneth Meade didn't intentionally harm the dogs, but he just had too many dogs to take care of them all. Thursday night, officers found 103 dogs on his property in cramped living conditions and some had diseases. Crews removed the rest of the dogs Friday.

"He wasn't cited. He's agreed to work with us and we're going to work together and help him depopulate his problem that he's got there," said Floyd County Animal Control Officer David Shepherd.

Officers say other animals at Meade's home, rabbits and raccoons were released back into the wild. Animal shelter employees say all the dogs will be put up for adoption in five days.
