LEBANON, Tenn. - Ferrets, chinchillas, chickens, dogs, cats even a duck were all rescued from deplorable living conditions in Carroll County. A total of 148 animals were taken to Lebanon to be treated and cared for.
Animal Rescue Corps. seized the animals from the home where officials say ammonia levels were so high, some dogs and cats have serious eye injuries that will need to be surgically repaired.
