Animals Need Homes After Neglect Invest.
FORT DODGE, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - City leaders in Fort Dodge are trying to place dozens of animals into homes after police say they were found living in disgusting conditions.
Officers got called to a home there on Saturday and when they arrived, they couldn't even go inside, because of the filthy conditions.
Only firefighters in HAZMAT suits and respirators were allowed in because the home was full of urine, feces and ammonia.
When officers finally got inside, they found 9 dogs and 27 cats living in filth.
Police say the homeowner; Kathleen Bond, was a well-known animal lover who would take in strays.
They say the animals *were healthy and well fed but the living conditions were dangerous for the animals.
Neighbors say they knew she loved animals, but had no idea how many were living there.
People are now being encouraged to help out, and adopt the dogs and cats.
Because they're all OK, police say bond will probably not face charges but they are still investigating.
