WHEC-TVA central New York animal welfare group is hoping the public will adopt some of the 100 animals rescued from a one-bedroom rural home.
Officials at the Tompkins County SPCA say the rescue of dozens of dogs, cats, rats, guinea pigs and chinchillas is straining resources at the Ithaca-based organization's shelter, which was already full when the animals were removed from the home last week.
Investigators say the animals were being kept in unsanitary, overcrowded conditions at a home in Brooktondale, 10 miles southeast of Ithaca. Authorities say several dead animals were found on the property.
Officials say the animals were being kept by a person who was a self-scribed "animal rescuer."
Investigators haven't released the person's name.
