PASADENA, Md. (CBSDC) – Over 40 animals were seized from a Pasadena home after a search and seizure warrant served by animal control officers proved the residence was unfit for their basic needs.
The search warrant served on the home in the 8000 block of Lockwood Road in Pasadena was part of a follow-up investigation into the amount of animals living safely inside the home, just over a month after Anne Arundel County Animal Control removed 10 animals capable of transmitting rabies from the same residence.
Officials attempted to work with the occupant of the home after confiscating the animals on Aug. 31, but upon visitng Thursday, Sept. 27, they were forced to remove 40 living animals with either no food or water, or water not fit for the animals. Animal control determined the animals were living in unacceptable conditions which did not meet their basic needs for care.
The list of animals removed from the Pasadena home includes:
Two dogs, one cat, two turtles, seven birds, four chickens, one goat, one pig, one chinchilla, three snakes, 12 aquatic animals, three geese, one duck, one kinkajou, and one tarantula.
A dead rabbit and a number of dead quail were also discovered in the home. Animal Control is now tasked with finding new homes for the misplaced and neglected pets.
