several Dozen Animals Taken From Local Home

Posted July 7th, 2011 @ 7:27am

WTOV9 reports that several dozens of animals were removed from a Hancock County woman's trailer.

Deputies seized a total of 15 dogs, 13 cats, turtles, snakes, mice and toads at a home on Asbury Road in New Cumberland on Tuesday.

Autumn Rebres said she has done nothing wrong and authorities had no right to take her animals.

Sgt. Chuck Stanley said Rebres had been warned one week before to improve the animals' conditions.

Officials say they  found no litter boxes in the trailer, nor did the animals have access to water or food.

Ffficials say they feared for the safety of the animals.

The Sheriff's Office says Rebres will be facing charges, but officials have not decided yet what those charges will be.
