Couple faces charges after 101 dogs, cats found in home

Associated Press

Cottrellville Township — A couple faces abandoning or cruelty to animal charges after 98 dogs and three cats were found in their home.

St. Clair County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Stephen Guilliat tells the Times Herald of Port Huron for a story Wednesday that warrants were being issued against a 66-year-old man and his 56-year-old wife.

Authorities say the animals were removed last week from a Cottrellville Township home after a neighbor complained about the smell and noise coming from the property about 50 miles northeast of Detroit.

County Sheriff Tim Donnellon said it appeared the couple had been breeding, showing and rescuing dogs.

The Norwegian Buhund, Norrbottenspets and Norwegian Spets mix dogs were covered in feces and urine, but in overall good physical condition.

The animals are being evaluated for adoption.
