SAN DIEGO – An eviction of a woman from her Shelltown area home turned up 21 dogs Thursday, along with half a dozen chickens and roosters on the small property.

Authorities went to the home near National City to evict the 70-year-old woman due to foreclosure, Los Angeles Times reported.

The dogs were found suffering from fleas, ear and eye infections, matted fur and other problems, according to Lt. Kalani Hudson of the Department of Animal Services.

The woman realized she could not care for the dogs and voluntarily relinquished them to the county, Hudson said.

Animal Services is investigating whether charges will be filed.
