CERES, Calif. (KGO) — Authorities in the Central Valley rescued 86 dogs and two people from a home in “deplorable conditions.”

An anonymous call for a welfare check led police to this home in Stanislaus County Tuesday.

That’s where they found five people, and 86 dogs in what police called “unlivable conditions”.

A four-year-old and an elderly woman were removed from the home.
