Susan Snavlin, Former Pompey Animal Control Officer Arraigned on 278 Counts of Animal Cruelty

In a disturbing case of animal hoarding, a former animal control officer in Pompey, New York was arraigned on 278 counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty earlier this week in a Tully court reported the syracuse.com.

Susan Snavlin, 61 has been charged with 32 counts of animal cruelty, 242 counts of improper confinement and four counts of failure to provide veterinary care; a violation of New York Agriculture and Markets Law Section 353. In September, authorities removed 220 dogs and 23 cats from Snavlin's Tully Farms Road property.

The animals were reported to have been well fed, however they were living in unsanitary conditions filled with feces and urine. Snavlin stated she thought she could give them better homes than what could happen in a shelter.

More than 50 puppies have been born since the animals were removed from Snavlin's home. They are in the custody of Central New York SPCA. The organization has been raising funds to help with this tremendous pet overload and to give every dog and cat the needed medical attention and care they need until new homes can be found.

Some of the dogs and cats are now available for adoption.
