According to an arrest report, Broward sheriff's deputies were called to the 100 block of South Powerline Road in Deerfield Beach Sunday, where they approached the van that had been parked in the area for several hours.
Witnesses told deputies that they saw a rabbit running around the van with the windows rolled up.
Deputies said the girl looked dirty and was barefooted with her feet on the front passenger side floorboard, which was wet and covered in garbage.
There were also cigarette ashes throughout the area where the girl was sitting, the report said.
Deputies said the girl told them that she had not showered in more than a week, had only a can of SpaghtettiOs to eat that day and had missed school for several days.
Authorities said Beers told them that she had a full-time job, but had been evicted from her home a week ago and rented to U-Haul van to move her family to Arizona.
Deputies said Beers said the rabbit was fine when they asked why it was inside the van with no fresh air, water or food.
Deputies said the human feces was located in an area where the child had several personal items stored.
Beers was arrested on charges of child neglect without great bodily harm and abandonment of an animal.

Police say three people told them that they saw a woman stumble through a parking lot with her child on Monday. They added that Beers was so drunk that she fell twice and hit her head as she crossed the parking lot, according to the probable cause affidavit.
The officer said the woman, identified as 42-year-old Julie A Beers, appeared to be sleeping behind a Dumpster. She smelled of alcohol, was slurring her speech, had bloodshot eyes and was unable to stand without assistance, police said.
When Beers woke up she didn't cooperate and refused to give any information. She smelled of alcohol, had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and couldn't stand without help, police said.
