DUBLIN, Ireland - Nearly forty dogs and other animals have been rescued in Dublin as a result of a multiagency operation.

The dogs, along with a number of cats, parrots, tarantulas, a snake, a scorpion, and a millipede were being held in cages, and in conditions described by the animals rescuers as 'inhumane.'
