The man died later at Christiana Hospital.
The house has been deemed unsafe for habitation.
SPACA spokeswoman Anne Cavanaugh says the dogs appear to be in good condition.
Cavanaugh says the animals are not available for adoption because they still belong to the homeowner's wife and daughter.
Two birds, one cat, a rabbit and a turtle were also confiscated.
