The animals will get first rate care, what about the people living in the house?
A small historic home in Pacific Grove was declared uninhabitable Wednesday after authorities found it crammed with dogs and cats in “shocking” conditions, the SPCA for Monterey County said.
The house was cluttered with piles of clothing, trash and garage, along with feces and urine, the SPCA said.
There were 18 dogs, including four small puppies, locked in three small back rooms. The stench of ammonia from urine was so strong that fire officials recommended that animal rescuers use protective gear.
Two cats were also taken from the home in the 400 block of Fountain Avenue.
