MOUNTAIN VIEW, AR (KAIT) - A self-described no-kill dog rescue facility is no longer caring for any animals.

Nearly 100 dogs were removed from the Innocent Hearts Animal Rescue in Mountain View Tuesday, according to a news release from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The Stone County Sheriff's Department requested assistance from the ASPCA to help in the removal of the dogs which included several breeds. The dogs lived in kennels and outdoor pens. 

ASPCA states the majority of the animals were not spayed or neutered and many are pregnant.

Following an investigation into neglect at the facility, the new release states, those at the shelter acknowledged they lacked the resources to care for the dogs and voluntarily surrendered them to the ASPCA.

The dogs will be taken to a temporary shelter in an undisclosed location to receive treatment until "suitable placement options are available."
