Animal control officials are looking for the owners of 34 dogs that were left alone in a San Bernardino County home.

San Bernardino County Animal Care and Control recently received a call that there were animals abandoned in a home in Highland, reports the L.A. Times. Upon arrival they found that the owner wasn't home, but left a note for them to contact officials. When they returned on Monday, they found the notice still in place, at which point the dogs found at the home—which included 34 male and female German shepherds—were considered abandoned. The animals were then taken to Devore Animal Shelter, according to ABC 7.

"They're dirty, but at this point in time we haven't seen any signs of cruelty and neglect," Greg Beck, program manager the county's Animal Care and Control, told the Times.

Officials are attempting to contact the owners, but have not yet received a response. If the owners can't be located, the dogs will be put up for adoption in about ten days.

"It's definitely not the average amount of dogs that people have," C.L. Lopez, a San Bernardino County spokeswoman, told the Times.
