LOVINGSTON - A judge ordered a woman charged with animal cruelty to
undergo counseling and refrain from keeping animals Wednesday after
animal control officers found an underfed horse and about 50 dogs at her
home with little food and water.
Nelson County animal control officers said they will work with local
agencies to find homes for the dogs, which were still living at the
woman’s home before the judge’s decision.

“She knows all those dogs’ names and personalities,” Rinker said.

reporting possible animal neglect at a house on Grandma Hill Road that
straddles Amherst and Nelson counties and belongs to Ackworth.
