LAGRANGE, Ga. (AP) - Police say dozens of animals have been rescued from a west Georgia home.

WSB-TV (https://2wsb.tv/2g0JRu1 ) reported Thursday that Animal Control found more than 30 animals, including 20 Chihuahuas, three ferrets and several cats, inside the home near LaGrange.

Hogansville Police say the animals were running around in their own filth with no power in the home. Police say Jonathan Gaddy and his mother, Tina Daniel, were given citations for animal cruelty and neglect.

Police say five of the dogs belong to Gaddy. His mother had about 20 of the dogs.

The Atlanta Humane Society is taking in Chihuahuas. The mothers and puppies will head to foster care. The adults will be placed for adoption after receiving veterinary care.
