Israeli police rescued at least five abused dogs on Wednesday from a shop in I'billin, a village northeast of Haifa, according to the Police Spokesperson’s Unit. 

Police received a video from Let the Animals Live, an NGO that provides for abused and distressed animals. It depicted neglected dogs held in small cages. In part of the clip, there are images of two dogs in the same cage that appears no bigger than 4 by 4 feet.   
The police located the animals and rescued them with the corporation of the municipality. They later transferred the dogs to Let the Animals Live to help rehabilitate them. 

“Israel Police will continue to prevent cruelty committed to animals,” the spokesperson said after the incident. “We will bring the suspects to justice.”

Police have currently identified the suspect behind the abuse, and are working to locate him.
