The Oahu Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals rescued 29 animals from a Nanakuli home.
Habitat for Humanities workers on Wednesday found 25 dogs and four cats locked inside an abandoned home that was about to be demolished.
Officials said they believe the animals belonged to the homeless who camped at the site.
The animals were severely dehydrated and emaciated, Oahu SPCA officials said. The group of animals included a pregnant dog and two litters of puppies.
"We don't know how long they were locked in there without food or water," said Stephanie Ryan, of the Oahu SPCA. "But judging from the condition of especially the nursing females, which were the most delicate, because of their loss of nutrient, they might have lasted a few more days without water."
The animals are being rehabilitated at the Oahu SPCA shelter in Kalaeloa. When they are healthy enough they will be available for adoption, officials said.
If you are interested in adopting an animal, you can contact the Oahu SPCA at 754-1519.
