Police have seized more than three dozen dogs living in "overcrowded and unsanitary" conditions at a house in Carlton County, northeast Minnesota.

The Carlton County Sheriff's Office says it was called to the property on Tower Road, in Silver Township, following a call from an agent with the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley.

After the agent spoke with the owner with a sheriff's deputy in attendance, they agreed to surrender "41 Chihuahua and Chihuahua mix dogs" to the Golden Valley center.

In a post on its Facebook page, the Golden Valley Humane Society said the pets found at the single-family included "tiny, unweaned puppies."

It's now looking for donations to help provide their care, including vaccinations and treatments, behavioral care and finding them families.

The nonprofit has created a fundraising page to help the dogs, which you can find here.
