WINSLOW TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) - There’s a deal in place to deal with a dog problem in Winslow Township that some say has gone on for years on one particular property there.

No one wanted to discuss the accord reached after hours of negotiations between the dog owners and the town prosecutor, but now the owners of almost four dozen dogs and puppies are giving them up to animal control officers.

The animals had been housed on a property along Norcross Road (photo) where a house once stood until a fire took it out years ago.

There are debates about conditions there, but no one was alleging animal cruelty.  Township law, however, prohibits keeping dogs on a property where no one lives.

Now, the three former dog owners — Ivan and Darrell Murray and Dannon Williams — have agreed to pay for the animals’ care and feeding while attempts are made to find them permanent homes.

The owner of the property — Ivan’s mother, Loretta — has also agreed to allow the township to clear most of the debris from the lot, with a $5,000 lien placed against her to pay for it.
