The total number of dogs removed from a Knoxville, Tennessee home has now risen to 76.
28 of the dogs have been euthanized due to poor health.
On Thursday animal control officers estimated they'd remove approximately 70 dogs from the home of James Edward Cagle and Glenda Marie Cagle.
In all, they captured and removed 75, including two that had escaped earlier in the afternoon.
On Friday morning, animal control officers returned to the home and captured another dog.
Several dogs had hidden behind wall panels, requiring animal control officers to remove parts of the wall to reach them.
Officers served a search warrant Thursday, after complaints from neighbors prompted a pair of unsuccessful attempts by officers to reach the Cagles at home.
The pair have been charged with five felony counts of animal cruelty and police expect to file additional charges against the Cagles, who are brother and sister.
