The Pennington County Humane Society got a call about someone hoarding 28 dogs and two cats in a house in Warroad.

The Humane Society says the American Eskimo dogs were in bad condition, with their fur matted and covered in feces.

WCCO-TV (http://cbsloc.al/zrwdsT) reports the Humane Society says it will cost over $1,000 a week to care for the dogs, and it hopes donations will help offset the costs.

Warroad City Attorney Steven Anderson says the dogs' owners, Gregory and Jan Kujava (kuh-JAH'-vuh), have been charged with animal cruelty, public nuisance and exceeding the number of dogs allowed by the city.

The couple is scheduled to enter a plea Jan. 30.
