Most of the animals were free to roam the house while some were kept in cages.

The living animals were living in squalor without access to fresh water or food.

The animals were taken to the Atlantic County Humane Society in Atlantic City to be checked over and housed. The rest of the animals went to the Atlantic County Animal Shelter in Pleasantville.

Volunteers and staff members came into the Humane Society on their day off to examine the dogs and birds, the organization said on its Facebook page.
