Police and animal control searched 116 Howe Street looking for evidence of animal cruelty and neglect.
Pictures from inside the apartment building taken by our media partners at the Sun Journal show the conditions. The animals are now at shelters around the area and receiving treatment, most of them were cats.
Samantha Bell says the animals were seized from her. She says they were well taken care of and wants them back.
The investigation is ongoing. Animals are not up for adoption yet, but officials say if you want to help out, donate to your local animal shelter.
