EAST MEADOW, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say more than 40 dogs have been removed from a Long Island home where they were living in filthy conditions.

Nassau County police say a woman who lived at the house in East Meadow was taken to a hospital Thursday for evaluation.

When police arrived at the house they requested the hazmat unit because of the overwhelming odor of urine.

Gary Rogers of the Nassau County Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals tells Newsday (https://nwsdy.li/29YP7aE ) that one dog was so covered with feces it was impossible to tell what color it was.

Police say Hempstead’s building department has condemned the house.

Rogers says the dogs are being taken to the Hempstead town animal shelter. They will be evaluated there before being put up for adoption.
