    Do you have a lease? What does it say about pets?

    Within the limitations of the lease language if one exists: You tell her that she needs to get the situation under control and pay for any repairs. If she can't do the former, she'll need to leave but will still have to do the latter.

    If she is not taking care of the animals properly and there are health issues, you may also contact your local ASPCA/Animal Control to check up on them.

    Unless you and your friend signed a lease that hasn't yet expired, your recourse is to evict her. If you have a lease with an unexpired term, you can only evict her if she is breaching the lease.

    I suggest you consult with a local landlord/tenant attorney.
