FRANKFORT, KY (WAVE) - A man accused of hoarding almost two dozen animals and keeping them in deplorable conditions said he had good intentions.

The animals were seized Wednesday after a mix of urine, feces and pet hair were discovered all over the home the man lived in with his wife, 16 dogs and seven cats.

The man said of his animals, "I gave up my life for them literally. They ate before I did most of the time. Before me and my wife did."

The situation has created additional stress for the Franklin County Humane Society, which is already at capacity. While the cats are now at the humane society the dogs had to be placed in a separate city facility.

For information on how you can adopt the animals that were seized, contact the Franklin County Humane Society at (502) 875-7297.
