6 Pug pups


Six Pug puppies were rescued by the Putnam County Humane Society after being found living in squalid conditions without food and water. 

Putnam Sheriff Deputy Barbara Devolve stated that Aura Acevedo was charged after an anonymous complaint sent officers to her home on Center Street in Brewster.  Officers found the 6 puppies in a small crate in a tarp-covered garage without food or water.

Acevedo is charged with 6 counts of animal cruelty.
