ROCKVILLE CENTRE - Police have arrested a Rockville Centre woman after finding the remains of dead animals in her home.

Animal control officials say they found 13 dogs alive, but have still not counted how many are dead. Police say the deceased animals were all in various stage of decomposition.

Officials say the woman was arrested, but charges are still pending.
