The Houston SPCA noted the animals were living in “deplorable” conditions.
“Many of the chickens, roosters, rabbits, ducks, parakeets, potbelly pigs, cats and dogs were in rooms filled with dirt, feces and urine,” the Houston SPCA noted on Facebook. “Some of them are in need of immediate medical care.”
