“The conditions were extremely unsanitary, feces and urine throughout the house, many animals did not have food or water. There were also some deceased animals in the home,” she said.

The animals were taken to the Humane Society to be examined by the veterinary team and receive any required medical treatments.

NHS said no charges have been filed at this time, but that the case is still under investigation.
