More than a dozen of them have died.
Local 4 was inside the Animal Control Center and was able to get an inside look at 100 animals from the home. Patrick Fanning with Oakland County Animal Shelter said they received a call on Tuesday for a welfare check at the home.
“We ended up taking a total of 100 animals -- 82 were cats, there were four rabbits, eight ferrets and five dogs as well as a bearded dragon,” said Fanning. “It was very hot. It was hotter inside the house than it was outside the house.”
Unfortunately, 16 of the animals did not survive.
“Several of the cats we found were already deceased. Some of them died in transit and some of them died here,” said Fanning.
The case is under investigation and the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office will review and consider criminal charges.
