Woman found with 104 dogs in her filthy Palmdale home

PALMDALE, Calif. Animal control officers in Palmdale found 104 dogs living in a feces- and urine-stained home later declared unfit for habitation because of shattered windows, broken pipes and a damaged roof.

Fifty-seven dogs were impounded and property owner Linda Papineau was ordered to find new homes for another 45 dogs by January 30th. Papineau was cited for operating an illegal kennel.

Officials say the impounded animals are too aggressive for adoption.

Code Enforcement officers went to the house Tuesday to serve a warrant for the property having more than the maximum two dogs allowed as well as various health and safety concerns.

Senior code enforcement officer Chuck McKaughan says the animals were emaciated and there were "large accumulations of fecal matter" and the stench of urine inside the home.
