PORTLAND, Ore. -- Buster the dog, a Rottweiler mix, has been rescued by the Oregon Humane Society Humane. OHS and Portland Police officers yesterday removed him from a home in Northeast Portland. Kent and Grace Adamson, were charged with animal neglect and voluntarily relinquished the dog to OHS, where it is now getting needed medical attention.

The warrant was issued for the residence at 6356 NE 6th Avenue in Portland. Buster is an elderly Rottweiler mix with obvious pain. Another resident of the home, Cecil Walling, was charged with neglect a couple weeks ago in regard to a sick and dying cat. Multnomah County have cited residents at that location several times for animal violations.

The situation began after Kent Adamson brought a malnourished rabbit to OHS. OHS investigators also discovered a another dog and five cats at the house Wednesday, but only Buster seemed to be suffering from neglect. The other animals remain at the house and OHS may file more charges.
