BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Two people were arrested for animal neglect and two pit bull dogs seized after police searched a Beaverton home Thursday.

Investigators said the home has a history of trouble. Police have responded to home 54 times in the past year alone.

In August, 2012, animal services seized ten pit bulls from the same address and the owners were accused of beating the dogs.

After the 2012 arrest, the pair was convicted of animal neglect and ordered never to have pets again. But Thursday, police found two new dogs in their care.

Investigators said the home was in poor condition and had no power, water or sewer service.

Neighbors said they were glad to see police taking action on Thursday.

They're just trouble all the time, in and out, always, in and out, arguing, fighting, said Zachary Moses, who lives nearby.

The two dogs seized Thursday did not appear to have any injuries. They were taken to the Washington County animal shelter for further evaluation.
