GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Twelve Mastiff dogs that were neglected and abandoned are now available for adoption at the James A. Brennan Memorial Humane Society.

The shelter says it is accepting applications on a first-come, first-serve basis and will not be adopting out of state.

The dog’s owner, Bentley Valdez, is facing nearly two dozen charges for failure to provide sustenance to 22 French Mastiffs in his care.

The dogs have been in the care of the shelter since April.
