LAVEEN, Ariz. - Authorities are investigating a possible dog- and cock-fighting ring in Laveen after 91 animals have been found living in poor conditions at the property.
Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies responded to a rural home near 79th Avenue and Baseline Road Tuesday afternoon to execute a search warrant.
Officials told ABC15 that investigators have found evidence of animal fighting, including an arena with beer cans nearby, leashes hanging from trees, multiple breeds of animals and rooster houses.
Investigators said 37 dogs were found at the property living in poor conditions. All the dogs appeared to be thin and mangy and there was no food or water in sight.
Deputies said they found one dog dead, and two horses collapsed when deputies tried to move them.
MCSO officials said they found several types of dogs at the scene including Rottweilers, Pit Bulls, and even small dogs.
"Little dogs, cocker spaniels, poodles, chained up with heavy chains. That makes you wonder what they're being used for. Are they a training tool for the bigger dogs that are here?" questioned MCSO Deputy Joaquin Enriquez
Deputies say the dogs' owner Luis Garcia is now under arrest.
Investigators said he admitted he feeds the dogs pizza scraps if he has them. He also claims he rescues the dogs from the river beds.
Authorities said they have been investigating this property for an undetermined amount of time after neighbors reported activity at the property.

It is a Tuesday afternoon and Samantha Spinelle sits crossed-legged on the cool, concrete floor of her office. A small, tan dog named Finn is folded into her arms. She strokes her hand over an angular body that is comprised of little more than skin stretched taut over bones. The warm cocoon of her embrace and soft caress is pure torture. In his world humans are not good. If only he could crawl back under her desk and make himself one with the hot-pink dog bed where he was safe just moments ago. Eyes fixed at some point beyond the gray wall, he is frozen, save for the slight, involuntary shudder that comes with each touch.
