“WTF…what sort of person can let a puppy have an ingrowing collar? Poor things must have never been allowed out of the crate, else she would have noticed…surely!
I’ll bet she was breeding them to make a few dollars…which is why she never cared for them. Well she better get a decent ass kicking from the Judge for this! Prison, probation, fine, & no more dogs for life; I think that’s fair, don’t you??
TAMPA — A 34-year-old woman accused of keeping a dog and six puppies in dire conditions was arrested Monday afternoon, Hillsborough County Animal Services said.
Regena Lewis of Tampa was keeping the dogs in a small kennel with no food or water, an arrest affidavit shows.
The dogs were standing in their own faeces and urine, causing the oldest to develop burns on her paws.
One of the puppies had a collar embedded in its neck, causing “unnecessary pain and suffering,” the affidavit shows.
Lewis faces two counts of animal cruelty and seven counts of improper confinement.
She was booked into the Hillsborough County jail, where she remained Tuesday morning in lieu of $2,500 bail.
