A man from New Hampshire is facing about three dozen charges after being arrested in Florida.

According to WMTW, the very strange story started about a month ago, when 36 year old Steven Martel alleged failed to return a U-Haul from a Newport, New Hampshire rental place.

Last week, police in New Port Richey, Florida spotted the allegedly stolen vehicle and pulled it over.  Inside the vehicle, police found nearly three dozen cats, two dogs, and an injured elderly woman!

Martel was reportedly the caretaker of the elderly woman.  She was taken to the hospital with sores on her legs.

The article also explained that the cats and dogs were in poor condition.  The animals reportedly had urine stained fur and sores on their feet.

During his arrest, Martel reportedly told police he was running an unlicensed animal shelter from the U-haul.

We are all hoping the woman and the animals all make a complete recovery.
