Investigation finds no violations at Road to a Home dog rescue

ONEIDA COUNTY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) -- An investigation in Oneida County found no law violations after more than 100 dogs were discovered living in cages on the Road to a Home Dog Rescue operation in Utica.

Officials are now pushing for change.The county executive wants to have a new law in place within the next two months that outlines the parameters of what a rescue should be.

"It was as we visited it and as other elected officials visited it, it was an old warehouse building along with a lot of cages and a lotta mess," Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente said.

It's expected that the new law will include how many animals can be taken care of, how many people would be required and the proper training they would have to go through.
