Dozens of animals rescued from 2 Albany homes

ALBANY -- Officials in Albany say dozens of animals were pulled out of two homes in the past week.

In the first case, authorities removed four dogs and nine cats on Thursday from a home on the 100 block of South Pine Avenue and taken to Mohawk Hudson Humane Society. Albany Police says the house they were found in was deemed unsafe. They were alerted to the situation by a call from a concerned neighbor.

The Mohawk Hudson Humane Society says all of the dogs and one of the cats were emaciated. One dog had to be euthanized because it was suffering. They say all of the animals had fleas and the dogs also had dental issues. They are currently working with Albany Police to determine whether to press charges against the owner.

The second case came about just days later on Tuesday. Officials removed 30 cats from a home on the 500 block of Third Street. That home was also deemed unsafe.

In that case, Mohawk Hudson Humane Society says the cats were extremely flea-ridden, one of the worst cases they've seen in a while. Otherwise, the cats are described as being in relatively good health. They say the cats will be adoptable as soon as they are nursed back to full health.
