A Rottweiler rescue organization in Davis is being investigated after accusations of animal abuse.

The investigation comes after three dogs were found dead at the Second Chance Rottweiler Rescue on County Road 96.

Also found on the property: 11 dogs that were still alive, but had no access to food or water, with temperatures reaching triple-digits. 

The surviving dogs were confiscated last week by the Yolo County Sheriff's Department when they learned the property owner could not take care of them. 

Another local Rottweiler animal rescue operation has taken over the care of the remaining dogs, and sheriff's officials say so far no charges have been filed.
