Dog Boarding Owner Charged With Cruelty
The co-owner of a dog-boarding and day-care facility in Brooklyn, NY has been arrested charged with five counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty for severely neglecting several dogs boarded at his kennel.
The investigation began in late June after ASPCA Agents discovered that the facility was housing dogs in extremely unsanitary conditions. The animals were left unattended in poorly ventilated areas saturated with urine and feces. Two underweight Pit Bull mixes are receiving veterinary care for severe urine burns as well as other conditions of neglect.
