FAYETTE COUNTY (KDKA) — The Uniontown home was so unbearable that police had to wear protective suits when they went inside.
Uniontown police were called to a home on Bierer Avenue in Uniontown Monday afternoon for a disturbance.
However, when they went inside, they found garbage and animals everywhere.
The smell was unbearable as police recovered 28 cats, nine dogs and one ferret.
As one cat lingered in the backyard, they had to set traps to catch the remaining cats.
The house was condemned and the owner not allowed back inside until the house is cleaned up.
The owner is expected to face charges after police finish their investigation.
“They immediately noticed feces packed on floor and had to leave,” says Lieutenant Thomas Kolencik of the Uniontown Police Department.
As for the animals, they are being housed at the Fayette County SPCA.
The animals found will be available for adoption by the end of the week at the Fayette County SPCA.
