Police were called to the home in Trussville on July 2 where they found dozens of dogs living in what were described as 'deplorable conditions'.
Owners - Business - Selling - Puppies - Parakeets
The owners were reportedly operating a business selling puppies and parakeets over Facebook from the residence.
They voluntarily surrendered 83 dogs to the Greater Birmingham Human Society and paid the shelter's $15 fee for each, racking up a bill of $1245.
Females - Birth - Mill - Number - Dogs
