But police in Milwaukee are trying to find out why someone would leave a dozen dogs in a vacant home.

Some of the dogs were in cages or tied to them. Others were running loose.

The dogs are now with rescue group.

An animal control officer found one of the dogs wandering the neighborhood after it somehow got outside.
