Authorities said they seized more than 70 animals Wednesday from a home in Northwest Arkansas.

Washington County deputies, along with the county's Animal Control unit, seized 67 dogs, eight goats, one pony and one rabbit from a home in the 100 block Highway 45 in Lincoln, the sheriff's office said in a Facebook post.

Debbie Cain, 62, was arrested and charged with eight counts of felony animal cruelty and 62 counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty, deputies said.

According to the post, Cain was taken to the Washington County jail, although she did not appear on the lockup's online inmate roster as of 5:45 p.m. Wednesday.

The animals will be held in various locations, authorities said, because of the large number that was seized.

No further information was released.
