Three Canandaigua residents charged with animal cruelty after dog found with broken hip socket

On November 22nd at approximately 3:10 p.m. the Ontario County Humane Society was requested by Ontario County Probation to check on a dog found dragging her right, rear leg when she walked.

They say the dog was found by probation officers who were conducting a home visit on two probationers living at 348 Jefferson Avenue in Canandaigua.

The Humane Society responded and investigated – locating a 9-month-old female dog named Ivy. She was unable to walk on the leg for about two weeks and had not been seen by a veterinarian.

They say the owners, identified as Brittany Lee Foringer, 41, Justin Payne, 39, and Preston Barr, 39, all of Canandaigua, made no attempt to seek help for the injured dog.

Ivy was seized and taken in for care. It was determined that her right hip socket was broken. She needed an operation, which was performed two days later. Ivy is recovering at a shelter, according to the Humane Society. The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office noted that the dog would remain at the shelter.

Foringer, Payne, and Barr were all charged with animal cruelty. They will appear in City Court at a later date to answer the charges.
