It always seems to be the ones who love animals the most that end up being the cruelest offenders:
FAIRFIELD, Conn. --Animal control officers from several towns removed 129 dogs that were living in filth and stench at the home of a woman who was charged with animal cruelty, police said.
Police obtained a search warrant for the home of Robbin D'Urso and found cage after cage with multiple dogs inside, police told WTNH-TV.
"Other cages had numerous puppies living in their own feces," said Fairfield police Lt. Dan Gombos.
Fourteen dogs were rushed to a veterinarian clinic for immediate medical care, police said.
D'Urso, who runs an animal rescue group, was charged with 14 counts of animal cruelty. She was released on a promise to appear in Bridgeport Superior Court on Aug. 8.
