STOCKPORT, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Several dogs were saved from what police are calling “deplorable conditions” on Saturday.
We’re getting our first look inside the Stockport house. A relative of the owner sent NEWS10ABC these pictures.
You can see the neglected state of the house where police say upwards of 14 dogs were left unattended since November.
The tenant of that home, 42-year-old Patricia Gregory, faces 14 counts of failing to provide sustenance to the animals.
NEWS10ABC went by the house over the weekend to try and get answers from Gregory. She was there, and appeared to be cleaning up. Her helpers were welcome and NEWS10ABC was not. “No, I don’t want it videotaped”, said Gregory.
“The conditions of the home were horrific”, said President of the Columbia-Greene Humane Society Ron Perez.
Ron Perez echoed what State Police were saying.
“It’s always very difficult to go into a building like that and find what we found in there”, said Perez.
Perez said there is reason why this even had to happen.
“There are numerous agencies that would have stepped in, namely us. We’re 15 minutes away, so there’s no real excuse”, said Perez.
The investigation will continue and the care of the dogs as well.
“We’re talking about animals here. They are the innocent victims”, said Jankowiak.
“They’re all wonderful little dogs. When the vets feel they’re good to go, we’ll start adopting them out”, said Perez.
If you have information about this case, State Police Troop K are asking that you call them at (518) 851-3111. If you want to submit an application to adopt one of the dogs, click here.
