Disturbing photos show squalor where neglected Fulton County animals lived
Newly-released photos give a closer look at the conditions inside the house at Kelly’s Haven in Mayfield.
Investigators say there were animals living inside the home.
Sue Kelly was arrested on 55 counts of animal cruelty last month.
In July, 50 dogs plus other animals were seized at the property.
This isn’t the first time animals were seized there. More than 300 dogs were seized 11 years ago.
Fulton County Sheriff Richard Giardino told NewsChannel 13 in July, this is more a case of neglect, and not of intentional abuse.
“It’s overwhelming,” he said. “She’s in her early 70s now. Not making excuses for her, but the psychology of hoarders is they want to protect the animals, they want to give them a place.”
There’s a hearing Monday about whether Kelly will have to pay for the seized animals’ care or whether she will have to surrender them.
