PHOENIX (AP) - Maricopa County Sheriff’s officials say they’ve seized more than 100 neglected animals from a home in Buckeye.

They say an animal crimes unit served a search warrant on the property Monday and found more than 30 dogs that were in a bedroom plus numerous cats that appeared to be ill from a lack of food and water.

Sheriff’s investigators believe there was both hoarding and breeding of animals at the home.

They say 37 dogs were seized along with 21 cats, 16 pigs, 16 guinea pigs, seven goats, six donkeys, one mule, three horses and six mini-horses plus multiple birds and rabbits.

The property owner’s 11-year-old son was found at the site, and the Arizona Department of Child Safety has an open case involving the boy and have been notified.
