Clinton Police have arrested a woman for cruelty to animals following a lengthy investigation by Clinton Animal Control and the State Animal Control Department.
According to a press release from the Clinton Police Department Emilie Blaine, 25, of Clinton, was in possession of two adult dobermans that had been left without food and water for at least 24 hours. The female was missing her ear flap and both dobermans were left inside a cage too small for them to lie down on an unheated porch.
The porch was full of dog feces and dog urine. The two adult dogs had moved the cage off it's bottom base from the back of the porch to the front trying to get out of it. Inside the residence were three Doberman puppies between the ages of six or seven weeks old who were thin and had patches of hair loss. These dogs were living in squalor. There were dog feces and dog urine all over the floors and walls and the house was full of garbage.
Blaine was arrested and charged with five counts of cruelty to animals and two counts of possesion of an unlicensed dog.
Blaine was released from police custody after posting a $15,000 bond. She is scheduled to be arraigned at Middletown Superior Court on Tuesday, April 29.
