The Nebraska Humane Society removed more than two-dozen animals from a Sarpy County home Friday morning that were living in filthy conditions.

Fifty-three-year-old Juanita Homes has been cited for 25 counts of animal cruelty

Sixteen chickens, five cats and two dogs were among the animals taken from the residence on Grissom Street, southeast of Highway 370 and South 144th Street.

"The house has chickens throughout the house both in cages and free-roaming chickens," said NHS vice president of field operations Mark Langan. "Absolutely unlivable conditions inside the house, feces throughout the house. So we're going to confiscate all the chickens, the dogs and the cats. The owner's not here and we'll be trying to find where she's at to issue citations."

Here is the list of animals that were removed:

  • 16 chickens
  • 3 quail
  • 1 pet mouse
  • 2 dogs
  • 5 cats
  • 10 fish

Neighbors were shocked to find this was happening when Nebraska Humane Society vehicles rolled up.

“I had no idea. I just thought, they're not the cleanest kept neighbors, but I had no idea they would have animals like that on the inside,” said Ashley Phillips, one neighbor.

“Yeah, that's really gross. I don't know how she lives in there with all of those animals,” said Jordan Northcutt, another neighbor.
