RIVERSIDE, Calif. -

Animal control officers say renters evicted from a Riverside County home left behind at least 30 dogs.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says the dogs, mostly Chihuahua mixes, were found Wednesday at a urine- and feces-littered home in Jurupa Valley. One dog was giving birth in a closet.

The renters already had left but the owners have 10 days to reclaim their pets from an animal shelter.

Meanwhile, the dog that gave birth and her six puppies are in a foster home.
