Lexington Police have arrested a young mother for having a house so dirty it put her children in danger.

They say, Kasey mills, 22, had 19 animals in the small home on Greenleaf Drive with the two young children and animal waste everywhere.

Police were called to the home by social services, after an anonymous tip led investigators there for a welfare check.

"The caller told social services that children may be living in really bad conditions," said Lexington Police Spokeswoman, Sherelle Roberts.

Roberts said after continued attempts to make contact with someone inside failed, officers made entry into the home.

Inside, police found Mills and her children living in what they called 'deplorable conditions.'

Mills was placed under arrest and charged with 'Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.' According to the arrest citation the children were 'neglected and living in conditions not fit for human life.'

Code Enforcement condemned the home, calling it 'unfit for human habitation.'

Police say the woman's two children are in the custody of other family members tonight.
