A Great Bend animal shelter is over capacity after 50 dogs were removed from a woman's home.

The Golden Belt Humane Society coordinated the roundup of the animals from a trailer home Tuesday on the southeast side of Great Bend. A concerned citizen notified People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which called the local shelter.

The Great Bend Tribune reports that Golden Belt's animal shelter has a capacity of 32 animals. Its manager, Seth Orebaugh, says volunteers are working to find homes for the dogs and contacting other shelters to take some of them but it is possible some will be euthanized.

Orebaugh says most of the dogs are in good health.

The home owner could face charges because Great Bend allows only four dogs in a home.
