65 Animals Removed From Filthy Home

KSAL StaffMay 22, 2016

Police and the Humane Society have removed 65 animals from a Wellington home where officers say the floors were covered with inches of feces.

Police found 22 rabbits, 12 dogs, nine cats, three guinea pigs, three ferrets, two rats and four mice living in the home after a neighbor called Friday night.

There also were 10 chickens in the backyard.

Wellington Humane Society vice president Phyllis Todd says it was a classic case of hoarding.

Neighbor Joseph Richards says police showed up after the animals started running around the neighborhood. He says he knew something was bad when he saw officers gagging.

The owners were allowed to take four dogs and the cats to a relative’s farm, and had until Sunday to take the chickens someplace safe.
