WILMINGTON, Del. -

Three malnourished dogs rescued from a Wilmington, Delaware home will need extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation before they can be adopted, Delaware SPCA officials said.

After being rescued, SPCA officials named the dogs Fleetwood, Mac and Stevie, after members of the band "Fleetwood Mac."

The dogs were rescued from the basement of a home on Brown Street. SPCA officials say the dogs were found cramped inside cages in their own feces. The cages were stacked on top of each other and the windows were covered, the SPCA said.

The dogs are considered to be mixed-breeds, with the young male in the worst shape.

"We were amazed that he still was in good spirits and wagging his tail, despite the horrible way he has been treated," SPCA volunteer Sherry Stewart said in a story posted on the Delaware SPCA website. Stewart helped care for the dogs and named them.

The SPCA says the dogs will need weeks of recovery before they can be placed in permanent homes.
