Veterinarian working to save Leeds rottweilers

LEEDS, AL (WBRC) -

A veterinarian is looking to save 33 dogs confiscated from a Leeds home. Earlier this week, a St. Clair County judge ordered the dogs be put to sleep.

Dr Rachel Nelson, a veterinarian in Moody, tells Fox 6 her motion to intervene on behalf if the dogs was denied after the judge told her the only parties that can intervene are the DA's office, animal control, or the owner of the dogs.

Nelson filed in court early Thursday morning trying to stop the euthanization of 33 dogs who were supposed to be put down. She says she has seen the dogs and some of them are adoptable. She plans to meet with her attorney now to find out if there are any other options.

Birmingham Jefferson County Animal Control will hold off on euthanizing the dogs to give the vet more time to try and save them.

The animals were taken from their home after the owners' two rottweilers attacked and killed an elderly neighbor.
