The Delaware SPCA says the 42 dogs found in a dying man's home in Glasgow are being cleaned and treated at the SPCA shelter in Stanton and at the Delaware animal control shelter in Kent County. The animals were found Monday when paramedics went to the home for a report of a man in cardiac arrest. The man was found surrounded by dogs on a floor covered in animal waste.

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.
