CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Cumberland County woman was arrested on child endangerment and animal cruelty charges after officers found filthy conditions and starving dogs inside her home, according to police.

North Middleton Township police said domestic relations officers had visited Lacy Jane Baughman on Monday and reported that they saw two children who appeared dirty, as well as animal feces and urine on the floors.

In addition, Baughman's house was in disarray and two emaciated dogs were in the basement, which was covered in dog feces and urine, police said.

Police said they obtained a search warrant for the house in the 1800 block of Spring Road and rescued the dogs, which were collected by a Humane Society officer.

No one was home at the time of the search, but Baughman returned that evening and was taken into custody by other family, police said.

Baughman, 25, was charged with endangering the welfare of children, cruelty to animals, dogs required to be licensed, and rabies vaccination required.

She was sent to Cumberland County Prison on $500 cash bail. A preliminary hearing was scheduled Nov. 25.
