Authorities say the dead animals were found throughout the first and second floors, and garbage and animal feces covered the floors of the Uniontown home, about 45 miles southeast of Pittsburgh.
Police say 17 dogs and two turtles were taken out of the home alive. Authorities also took 14 dead turtles, four dead chinchillas and one dead bird from the home.
Authorities say the owners weren't home when it was raided on Monday.
