Woman could face cruelty charges after animals rescued from home

CRAIGHEAD COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A Craighead County woman could soon face animal cruelty charges after more than 30 dogs were rescued from her home last week.

It happened on County Road 160, northeast of Cash.

Police said they searched the home after reviewing pictures and videos.

When they got to the home, Sheriff Marty Boyd said they decided to remove all of the animals.

“Because of the cool temperatures and the weather we've had lately, we don't feel it was adequate for the animals to survive in,” Sheriff Boyd said. “There were signs there weren't any water for the animals and just the total conditions were, you know, there was feces stacked up on the cages.”

Thirty-one of the dogs were treated at a Jonesboro veterinarian's office.

The dogs' owner has not been arrested or charged in the case, but Sheriff Boyd said that could change.
