CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - A Hixson man will face charges after officers found nearly 20 dogs in his home.

Neighbors reported Winston Andrew O'Dell to police because of excessive barking coming from his home.

Officer showed up with an eviction notice Monday and discovered 19 Chihuahuas in the home.

McKamey officials were called to remove the dogs from the home.

Karen Walsh, Director of McKamey Animal Center, told Eyewitness News there was no power to Odell's trailer home. A kerosene heater was running, making the home 101 degrees inside.

Walsh says the heat was a factor in charging O'Dell with neglect.

The dogs had not been vaccinated and were not registered with the city. Walsh says O'Dell does not have a breeders permit either.

The dogs have been taken to McKamey.

O'Dell will answer to the neglect accusations in court on the 24th, the same day he is scheduled to appear on a domestic assault charge.

Odell has a criminal record that dates back to 1994
