Animal control officers rescued more than 80 animals from a Deltona, Florida, home on Wednesday, January 12.
The owners of the home, Keith Harms and his school teacher wife Robyn Harms, were charged with child abuse without great harm because a 16-year-old girl lives in the house, according to the Daytona Beach News-Journal.
Volusia County Sheriff's Office spokesman Gary Davidson told the news source that the teenager was turned over to the Florida Department of Children & Families.
City spokeswoman Wendi Jackson said that officials went to the Harms's property in December because of complaints of inoperable vehicles. While at the home, they noticed a strong smell coming from the house, which led to the search on Wednesday.
Animal control officers from Deltona served a warrant at the Harms's house and found unsanitary conditions. They eventually took 12 dogs and 71 cats out of the home. The West Volusia Beacon reports that one dead kitten was also found in the home.
Many of the rescued animals are now reportedly up for adoption.
