Feb 15, 2013 - 19 dogs in poor condition were found in a Gates County, NC backyard. They were in poor shape, unfed and showing wounds (maybe used for dog fighting). Due to the capacity at the Tri County Animal Shelter, deputies are working to find a place for the dogs. Sheriff Edward Webb said these dogs are all VERY FRIENDLY to people and other dogs and deserve a SECOND CHANCE. Contact: Sheriff Edward E. Webb, 202 Court Street, PO Box 154, Gatesville, NC 27938.
