HOOKSETT, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire animal safety officials say they have rescued 32 cats and one bird from a Merrimack County hoarding home.

SPCA officials say the animals rescued in Hooksett were living in filth and most weren’t vaccinated. They say a majority of the critters have fleas and respiratory infections.

The homeowner willingly surrendered the animals and isn’t facing charges.

SPCA officials say the owner was given a chance to clean the home and provide the necessary medical attention for the animals.

SPCA Humane Agent Steven Sprowl says the condition of the home was unfit for both humans and animals alike.

The SPCA expects to return to the home in the coming days because it’s likely some animals were hiding.

The cats will be put up for adoption once they are healthy.
