LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Kristina Kizer, a 29-year-old Lubbock woman, has been indicted on a charge of child endangerment and three counts of child endangerment and neglect.

The charges come from a Tuesday indictment by a Lubbock County grand jury after Kizer was arrested in November, according to court documents. Kizer, who was a foster parent adopted three children in Las Vegas, but when police were called to her home near the 2100 block of 65th St. in November the children were taken away after she was charged with child endangerment.

Upon the arrival of authorities 28 dogs, 20 cats, two chickens and a lizard were found inside of her home. Kizer told investigators in the case she was rescuing animals and said it "just got a little out of hand." Authorities also noticed lots of trash in the yard, overgrown weeds and an overall unkempt atmosphere, which Kizer blamed on a medical condition. 

The children were later placed in a foster home and the animals were released to Animal Control Services.
