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.
