The Altamonte Springs Fire Department on Thursday received an anonymous tip from a caller who expressed concern about multiple dogs at a house in the San Sebastian Hills subdivision.
Animal services workers and volunteers said they were not prepared for what they found when they arrived.
They said they discovered the dogs, many of them emaciated or malnourished, living right on top of one another. They said the conditions inside the home were so bad, they were forced to wear hazardous material suits.
"The house, you could not even navigate through," said Altamonte Springs Police spokesman Robert Pelton.
