Myrtle Beach police say three dogs were left without food or water at an evacuated home.
Officers were called to 1224 Clark St. after 5 p.m. Tuesday in reference to animal cruelty and found two small white dogs inside a chain-link-fenced kennel, a report said. Police said there also was a small black dog inside the home.
Police determined that the people who lived at the home had evacuated and would not be back until Sunday, authorities said.
Animal control took the two outside dogs to a shelter, the report said. An officer was to follow up the next day for the other dog, according to police.
