Abandonment of 4 dogs
July 21, 2006
County Humane Officers have filed three charges against
Skip Campbell, a next-door neighbor, reported that the owners of the home moved out about two months ago but left the dogs behind. Campbell further stated that one the dogs named Molly, had been living outside for the past two months with garbage bags full of feces and flies. He had been feeding her, bathing her now and then and giving her an occasional walk.
After the Humane Society left a warning for the homeowners, Amber Michael brought the dogs in within a few hours, claiming she was not the owner, but found them abandoned. The Humane Officer was quick to note that the animal intake form name was the same as the name on the residence mailbox. Amber Michael was told to bring in the other dog that was still trapped inside the house. If the animal is not brought in, the Humane Society will obtain a search warrant to rescue it.
