WILMER, ALABAMA -

More than 50 dogs have been hoarded at a house in Wilmer on North Morgan Lane Friday afternoon.

The Mobile County Animal Shelter had to use four trucks to transport all of the dogs to the shelter.

Some of the dogs have mange, while others seem to be ok. They are all being checked out at the shelter.

Authorities say some of the dogs may have been stolen, so they are working on trying to find a way to reunite them with their owners.

Nancy Johnson with Mobile County Public affairs tells News 5, there is room at the county animal shelter for all of the dogs, and none of them will be euthanized, unless they get a call about more animals.

"It was covered with animal waste and human trash all over the place, every single area. It appears that the dogs were eating some dog food and some of that trash," said Carmelo Miranda, County Humane Officer.

This wasn't the first time officers have been to the home. On December 26, 2012 they seized animals from the property.

"We removed 46 dogs from that location, they got back 19," said Miranda.

The Mobile County Animal Shelter is now at capacity. With 48 adoptable dogs already in the shelter, they need to find a home.

The shelter will be open Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
