The dogs were kept in cages for 23 hours a dayAnimal control officers put a stop to an illegal kennel in Lakeside, California, when they discovered 63 dogs living in crates in a two-bedroom home.

The majority of the canines were in poor dog health as a result of neglect and unfit conditions, according to The dogs were taken to the county animal shelter where veterinarians went to work treating the pups for their numerous medical problems before they’re to be put up for adoption.

According to USA Today, when animal control officers arrived at the scene, they saw that a number of cages had feces and three-day old vomit in them.

After spending 23 hours in a cage a day, the dogs are relishing in their pampering, and animal control officers are hopeful that they can go on to have better lives after the traumatic experience.

"There is a tremendous amount of hope," Lt. Dan Desouza told KFMB. "The public is going to have to step up and say yeah, I can take one of these dogs home and give it a loving home."ADNFCR-2720-ID-19667590-ADNFCR
