The Humane Society says about 30 dogs were rescued from an alleged animal cruelty situation in south-central Kansas.

The organization said in a news release the animals were removed Wednesday from a residential property in Kingman County. The exact location wasn’t disclosed.

The animals were found when the Kingman County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant at the property after concerns were raised about the animals’ welfare.

The release says the dogs appeared to have skin conditions from living in a filthy environment. Some of the dogs were kept in makeshift pens and crawled under trailers for shade.

The animals will be examined and taken to an undisclosed location.

Kingman County law enforcement and several animal advocacy groups helped with the rescue.
