Animal control officials in Bloomington are seeking help from the public to help make room for dozens of dogs seized from an unauthorized breeder.

Bloomington Animal Care and Control is providing on-the-spot approval to people willing to provide care for shelter dogs for one to two weeks.

Shelter officials say the public can help by dropping off bedding at the entrances to their building on South Walnut Street at any time. People can also donate money in the early afternoons Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

The Monroe and Brown County humane associations are also helping.

The agency says Bloomington police and Monroe County sheriff's deputies helped seize 68 dogs and puppies from an unauthorized breeder on Friday.

A spokesperson for the Bloomington Police Department says the investigation is ongoing and officers have not made any arrests.
