20 Animals Rescued From Filthy Milford Home

The home has been condemned.



    Milford Animal Control is caring for 20 pets rescued from filthy conditions at this home on Ocean Avenue. The house has been condemned.

    The Milford Health Department has condemned a home on Ocean Avenue after authorities found 20 animals living in filthy conditions.

    Neighbors called authorities to complain about the stench, and investigators arrived to find 16 cats, three dogs and a bird living among trash and their own waste, according to city Health Director Andrew McBride.

    “They were kept inside the facility in, you can imagine what that was like, without running water and animals going outside,” McBride said.

    Animal Control is taking care of the pets, and McBride said the city will take legal action against the homeowner if the house isn’t brought up to code.
