Nearly 100 dogs and five exotic birds have been rescued in what Pinal County Animal Care and Control officials are calling an extreme case of animal hoarding. One dog had severely infected bite wounds and had to be euthanized.

The dogs were found Tuesday living in what officials described as deplorable conditions at a home in a rural community near Maricopa, 35 miles south of Phoenix.

Two people were living in the home with no power or running water and floors covered with garbage and several inches of dog waste.
