ELOY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pinal County Animal Care and Control officers rescued 32 small dogs from a Silverbell Estates home, southwest of Eloy.

The animal care staff said once the animals are evaluated, the County Attorney's Office will decide if the homeowner will be charged, according to a news release.

"This is clearly a case of hoarding," Animal Care and Control Director Kaye Dickson stated in the release. "The house had urine stains on the walls and many of the dogs had matted fur and were not in good condition."

Dickson said the dogs looked like poodle mixes.
