Earlier this week, Channel 6 News Fact Finders were there as the Nebraska Humane Society seized 13 dogs from an Omaha home. The homeowner was ticketed for having more than three dogs with no licenses or vaccinations.
Twenty-seven-year-old Nicole Busey said the dogs inside the house near 83rd and Maple were her own or rescue dogs, she wasn't boarding them.
The Nebraska Humane Society's Mark Langan said Friday three of the dogs have been returned after Busey cleaned up the interior of her home. The other 10 dogs are being sent to rescues in Omaha and South Dakota.
Busey plead guilty and paid a small fine, though she still faces other charges related to the raid. She had initially refused to open the door so police had to call in a locksmith.
“They appear to be in healthy condition, but the living conditions are very poor for the dogs with high ammonia levels due to the feces and urine throughout the house," said Langan last Tuesday.
Busey has a history of boarding other people’s dogs. In Ralston last November, authorities shut down a kennel she operated for lack of permits and a kennel license.
