300 animals rescued from farm in Gloversville

GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. – A 35-acre farm in Fulton County is being investigated by sheriff's deputies and the ASPCA for neglect of the animals living there.

About 300 animals, including horses, dogs, cats, goats, roosters and hens, lived at “Kelly's Haven For Animals.” Investigators say they were underfed and living in tight cages with feces.

The buildings on the property have been condemned by the Department of Health, deeming them uninhabitable. The business has also been shut down.

Dozens of the animals have been seized so far and the rest of the animals will be removed in the next few days, going to other rescues and shelters, or permanent homes.

The owner of the farm, Sue Kelly, would not speak with NEWS10 on the issue. Kelly is facing charges of failing to provide proper food and sustenance, along with welfare fraud charges.
