Investigators say the property was in disrepair, and unfit for humans or animals.

Seven of the dogs were in what appeared to be a renovated garage area. The rest were in a shed made from concrete blocks.

The dogs were filthy, and had no food or water available to them.

All were safely rescued and taken to a vet for evaluation.

The property owner is facing charges.
