LEE TWP. (AP) – More than 30 dogs, including many covered in feces and urine, have been rescued from a southern Michigan home.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports that the 33 dogs were mostly kept in cramped carriers or kennels in a home in Calhoun County’s Lee Township. The animals were seized Friday and taken to a local animal shelter.

Sheriff’s officials say a 42-year-old woman who lives in the home was not arrested but a warrant is being sought for animal cruelty and child endangerment.

Police say state Child Protective Services workers will investigate living conditions in the home, where a 13-year-old girl also lives.
