I am sorry to hear about this situation.
There is no way that the county can take the dogs right now.
However, it sounds like this has only been undertaken as an ordinance violation. If someone in your situation was to sue in civil capacity, then if the neighbor fails to heed an injunction, there can be more options to silence the dogs.
Are you interested in knowing how to do this via civil court?
