Wicomico County Animal Control said in a news release Monday that authorities found 200 dogs inside a barn in Eden, while another 100 were found inside a house on the same property on April 6.

Wicomico County Sheriff's Office Lt. Tim Robinson says it took animal control and the sheriff's office 14 hours to remove the dogs.

Humane Society of Wicomico County Executive Director Aaron Balsamo tells WBOC-TV that most of the dogs removed from the property were Pomeranians, with the majority not being in good condition.

Authorities have not released the identities of the dogs' owners and, as of Monday, Robinson said no charges have been filed.
