STRATHAM, N.H. (AP) - Authorities say about 50 animals living in overcrowded, filthy conditions have been rescued in New Hampshire and have been relocated to the Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals in Stratham following an animal cruelty complaint.

An SPCA spokesman says the animals include two horses, a mother dog and her four puppies, 27 rabbits and 15 guinea pigs. All will be evaluated by a veterinarian. The organization believes the dogs are suffering from worms and the horses appear underweight and without proper hoof care. Some of the rabbits and guinea pigs were suffering from urine burns on their paws.

The SPCA says the owners of the animals are cooperating with authorities.
