The dogs were found roaming free inside the residence, where the ferrets and birds were also living in separate cages.

Officials with the SPCA say the animals have varying health issues, including malnourishment, hair loss, long nails and flea infestation.

A custody hearing for the animals will be held later this month. Until then, they will be examined by medical staff and cared for by the SPCA.
