NORTH FORT MYERS, Fla - Lee County Animal Services spent a greater part of Saturday trying to round up dozens of cats and dogs hoarded in a home.

The corner of Kindly Road and Ridgeway drive was the site of a heartbreaking case of animal abuse. Animal control removed 9 dogs and cats from a house.

Officers say the animals were living in filth and were malnourished. Two cats were in such bad shape they  were found dead in a driveway and the front yard of the house.

Neighbors tell WINK News a woman lives at the home and was known to feed dozens of stray cats. At least 6 cats could be seen jumping from fence-to-fence and up a tree.

No criminal charges were filed against the animal's owners though Animal Control says that could change once their investigation is completed.

We do want to warn you the video you are about to see is disturbing.
