The Michigan Humane Society and the Detroit Police Department raided a home on Detroit's east side and rescued 19 dogs Tuesday.

They removed five animals from the outside of the property and an additional 14 from inside the home.

A search warrant was issued for the property after MHS investigators found unsanitary conditions and multiple animals with health problems.

Officials say some dogs were in cages outside while others were in cages in the basement, full of feces and urine.

MHS says some of the dogs may not have survived much longer had they not been rescued.

At this time, all of the dogs are in the care of MHS, where they are receiving medical attention.
