By  | 

Charges have been filed against the couple accused of neglecting three children and more than 185 animals.

An Adams County court charged Jess and Tina Kolb of Springville with three counts of neglecting a child, 10 counts of intentionally mistreating animals and nine counts of failure to provide food for an animal.

According to the criminal complaint, investigators went to the Kolb's home and found 37 dogs, 133 rabbits, 13 cats, 2 horses and other small animals uncared for. That's when they discovered three children were also living in the home.

The Adams County Sheriff's Department said the home was covered in animal waste, including on the children's clothes and beds. The kids were taken to a foster home and the animals were taken to the Adams County Humane Society. The Kolbs will be back in court on January 6, 2010.
