Ohio Kidnapping Suspect's 3 Dogs Go To Foster Care

CLEVELAND (AP) - Three dogs seized from a Cleveland man charged with holding three women captive over a decade have found a foster home.

Chief Cleveland animal control officer John Baird says the pets were ready for pickup Tuesday by a rescue group that will care for them.

They'll be in foster care until the women - Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight - decide whether they want to take the pets into their homes.

Baird says the women will get whatever time they need to decide. He says the women may have bonded one-on-one with the dogs in captivity, and as such, the pets would be important as the women acclimate to freedom.

A defense attorney says the kidnapping and rape suspect, Ariel Castro, will plead not guilty. He's in custody.
