Thirty dog were safely removed from a one-bedroom apartment that was covered with animal waste and extreme insect infestation, officials said.

The owner has relinquished all dogs to the North Chicago Police Department, and the Animal Control Warden is now working with area veterinarians to evaluate and treat the dogs.

The majority of the dogs were in varying degrees of dehydration and malnutrition, officials said. Two dogs were immediately sent to the animal hospital for emergency medical care and two other dogs were noticeably pregnant.

North Chicago police are reaching out to any and all licensed rescue facilities to place dogs, with the goal of future adoption.

If you’re interested in volunteering to help the dogs, please call 847-596-8774 to leave a contact number.

Charges against the 42-year-old owner are pending.
