The animals ranged in age from newborns to fully grown, WPIX reported.
Some of the animals were pregnant, others had dental injuries, severe dehydration, infections and ocular discharge.
Dominick Ciabattari is accused of operating a puppy mill. He faces charges for not providing proper care to the animals, but more charges may be filed, WNBC reported.
Police said that mattresses were used to soundproof the home and so neighbors could not hear the noise coming from the cages that were in the kitchen, closet and basement of the home.
