Deputies say Campbell refused to give animal control officers permission to go to her home and care for the animals so they got a search warrant.

They say when they went into the home Tuesday afternoon they found three dead chihuahuas and 40 others all in poor health.

Also charged in the case was 66-year old Harold Campbell.
