On Tuesday, humane officers seized over 80 animals from a home in Akron. They are now being cared for at the Humane Society of Greater Akron located in Twinsburg.
Officers rescued over 40 hamsters, 16 birds of different species, three rabbits, seven guinea pigs and six cats.
Most of the animals are available for adoption for a small fee.
"It's very common to see these types of animals in our shelter," said Kristin Branagan of the Humane Society of Greater Akron. "It's not common to see this many animals of this kind at one time."
While Branagan shared how beautiful and adoptable the animals are, she stressed the importance of families understanding the commitment involved in caring for these pets.
