One dog and 86 cats were rescued from a Mount Clemens home Thursday.

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. - One dog and 86 cats were rescued from a Mount Clemens home Thursday, Jeff Randazzo, of Macomb County Animal Control, confirmed. 

Conditions in the home were terrible, Randazzo said.

The woman in the home was being evicted. Eviction notes had been placed on the home's door. The cats were discovered after a court officer showed up at the home to address the eviction notices. When the woman opened the door, the court officer saw the cats and agencies were called in to remove the animals. 

The woman had been living in the home since 2017. Several of the cats had never received medical care.  Randazzo said the cats need medical care, vaccines, deworming and other health-related services. 

The woman is being evaluated at a hospital and the cats are with the Macomb County Animal Shelter.
