DEER PARK, Wash. -

Officials with the Spokane Regional Animal Protection Services seized more than 140 animals from a property in Deer Park last week. Officials seized 64 rabbits, 72 chickens, 2 turkeys, 4 goats, 3 pigs and 3 dogs. The couple who owned the animals could face multiple criminal charges in the case. 

Neighbors say they've known something was wrong for months. 

“I've visited here once, and I wasn't happy with how the animals were taken care of,” neighbor Sarah Levitt said. “I'm glad these animals can finally have a life.”

According to court documents, the couple would sell some of the rabbits, chickens and goats for meat eggs and milk.

SCRAPS officials took several photos of the "deplorable" conditions the animals were living in which include cages filled with feces, a goat chained to a fence without it being able to reach its water and trash strewn around the property and cages.

The animals are being housed at the Spokane County fairgrounds and are actively being adopted. 

SCRAPS is holding a public adoption on Wednesday October 1st from 2pm-6pm at the Fairgrounds.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - Initiative-1639 has been the root of controversy ever since supporters began asking for signatures.
