RED BANK, Tenn. (AP) - An Oakland Terrace home is now condemned after authorities discovered a suspected hoarding case with 17 animals.

WRCB-TV (https://bit.ly/1EcOL7T ) reports a Thursday investigation initially began as a child welfare check according to Humane Educational Society Executive Director Bob Citrullo. The agent arrived and saw the house full of debris, garbage and found the family’s pets in distress.

Citrullo says it was apparent the nine dogs, six cats and two rabbits were regularly fed, but inches of animal waste caked throughout the pens and home suggest the pets were subjected to the unsanitary conditions for weeks, if not months.

Citrullo says he hopes the pets’ owner will sign over the animals so they can better care for the medical treatment they require such as mange, skin and urinary tract infections.
