Debby MacDonald and Mark Ramos respond to a call about an owner that has temporarily gone away, leaving pets in terrible conditions. They find a dead dog, and the other animals are alive but in nasty conditions. The water is green, and the food is rotting. They even find a jaw bone! They then feed the animals and count them. Altogether they find two rabbits, seven chickens, a turkey, two hen, two pheasants, a goose, two roosters, four quails, and a dog. Unfortunately they can't legally take them.
MacDonald and Jennifer Charion later return, and the owner returns as well. He claims that the dead dog ate rat poison. Unfortunately, the body is too decomposed to prove otherwise. He signs the birds over, but the dog is his brother's, so they leave it behind. The birds are adopted, and no action is taken against the previous owner because it turned out that he did set up care for the animals but was let down.
