Just days after two pit bulls were found chained behind an empty home, police discovered two more dogs abandoned at another Rock Hill residence.
A neighbor alerted authorities to barking dogs left in a Mancke Drive residence a week after residents moved and the utilities had been turned off, according to a Rock Hill police report.
Police found the house in disarray with trash and clothes on the floors Monday night, the report states.
York County Animal Control officials removed the dogs.
No charges have been filed.
This is the second instance of abandoned dogs found in Rock Hill in a week. Two malnourished pit bulls were found chained to a tree behind a house that appeared to have been vacant since November, police say.
A York County Animal Control official alerted police that he found two pit bulls chained to a tree Friday morning in the backyard of a residence on the 500 block of East Black Street.
The dogs were found on the verge of starvation, chained to trees without food, shelter or water that wasn’t frozen.
Utilities to the residence had been turned off last month, and those dogs were also seized by animal control.
