Another day, another tragic story about innocent animals being left to suffer in inhumane conditions and freezing temperatures.

Especially shocking, this case involved the rescue last week of more than 200 animals from one home in Rome Township, Michigan.

Felony animal cruelty charges were filed against Sharon Kay Evans, on January 4th according to a statement issued by the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office.

More than 200 dogs, 32 horses, five cats and two peacocks were discovered during the search, all of which were found to be living with no shelter or water. Making matters significantly worse, the extremely cold temperatures made the abhorrent situation life-threatening.

Initially, police were following up on a complaint that Evans, who was licensed to operate a kennel at her home that allowed her to have up to 75 dogs, had falsified documentation and was selling dogs advertised as puppies.

Evans now faces charges of animal abandonment and cruelty to 10 or more animals which is a four-year felony.

This Thursday, Evans is scheduled to appear in Lenawee County District Court where she will either choose to forfeit her claim to the animals or continue on to trial.

The animals are currently being cared for by the Lenawee Humane Society, the Jackson County Animal Shelter, Cascades Humane Society, Branch County Humane Society and the Monroe County Humane Society.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture, the Lenawee County Health Department, and local veterinary offices assisted in the seizure of the animals.
