Cruelty Cases Make for Overcrowding at Wayne County Humane Society
The arrest of a Wolcott couple on animal cruelty charges is just the latest emergency for the Humane Society of Wayne County. The agency says the number of recent rescues has been unusually high.
Thirteen dogs and two cats were rescued from the Wolcott home, and theyve added to the already crowded conditions at the Humane Society. It's just the latest case of animal cruelty the staff there has dealt with in the last few weeks.
"We've had a total of 23 animals brought in in two days from cruelty and seizures," said Mark Plyter, executive director of the Humane Society of Wayne County. "So along with the dogs that we already had here, we have the most we've ever had."
It's a similar situation at Cracker Box Palace (www.crackerboxpalace.org), which partners with the Humane Society and cares for neglected farm animals. Two horses, a couple of goats, and three Muscovy ducks were also rescued from the Wolcott property. Date Added: January 18th, 2010
