Two people are in custody after Horry County police seized over two dozen dogs from a Loris home, according to authorities.

Officers executed a search warrant around 8:15 a.m. on Wednesday off of Cane Branch Road near Loris, taking more than two dozen dogs, according to a Twitter post from the Horry County Police Department. Officials say the search warrant is connected to animal abuse and requested that the public stay clear of the area while authorities investigated.

Horry County Animal Outreach Services was called to the scene, according to the department’s Twitter post, and the dogs will be held at the Horry County Animal Care Center. Officials said the dogs have been processed, evaluated and treated, and are not available for public viewing or adoption at this time.
