Woman with history of animal hoarding accused of having more than 30 dogs | News
MAYFIELD - There was outrage in Fulton County after a woman with a history of hoarding animals, has now taken in more than 30 dogs.
That woman should expect a visit from authorities Wednesday. However, this appears to be a tough situation because the dogs were rescued from a different case and it's not clear if they have to be rescued again.
NewsChannel 13 was greeted by the barking sound of dogs at, Kelly's Haven, an animal rescue facility on Route 349 in Mayfield. Then moments later, a woman kicked the crew off the property.
Authorities plan to visit the home on Wednesday, following up on complaints that the homeowner, Sue Kelly is hoarding animals.
Fulton County Sheriff Thomas Lorey said he's coordinating with SPCA to check on Sue Kelly's nearly three dozen dogs, animals that some say are not being cared for properly.
Frankie Page says she adopted a dog from Kelly's Haven. She had to nurse her back to health.
That adoption took place just before police and the ASPCA raided the place in July last year. More than 300 animals, including dogs, cats, goats, birds and horses were found.
The shelter was shut down for unsanitary and unhealthy conditions. Kelly was slapped with at least one animal cruelty charge.
Jennifer Warner has volunteered for Kelly's Haven before. She says the 35 dogs this time around, came from another hoarding case and it looks like authorities are moving animals from one hoarder to the next.
According to the sheriff, Sue Kelly can have animals but under supervision, but he could not tell who is supposed to be supervising her.
