The Nye County Sheriff’s Office said a woman was arrested after more than 70 animals were found on her property.

Breanna England, 38, was booked into jail on a separate arrest warrant for failure to attend court for two traffic violations.

Deputies arrived at a home in the 1500 block of Heritage Drive in Pahrump to “secure a residence.” While at the property deputies found a deceased kitten and approximately 20 large dogs, 35 Chihuahuas, 15 cats, two horses and a pot bellied pig.

"It's just so sad how people hoard animals," said Sheriff Sharon Wehrly of Nye County. "Living in filth, dirt, and feces, I don't see how people could do that."

Wehrly said the animals were not provided adequate shelter, food, or water. She also said the animals lived in “deplorable conditions of filth and trash."

"I did not expect this at all," said Max Van Fossen, who lives next door. 

Van Fossen said England's step dad owned the home and the animals but recently died. 

"He was very sick," Van Fossen said. "I saw him at the VA hospital just about three days before all of this took place."

Van Fossen also said the animals were alone most of the time. 

"They'd get out sometimes and I mean the little ones," Van Fossen said. "There would be six or seven of them running every which direction."

England was arrested on a Pahrump Justice Court arrest warrant. The animal cruelty case remains under investigation and charges are pending, deputies said.

The animals were relocated to a facility that can provide care, deputies said.

England remains in custody on $1,001 cash only bail, deputies said.
