Police: Ballston Spa woman had 3 starving dogs

Police have arrested a Ballston Spa woman for allegedly having three malnourished dogs.

Alexis L. Hagadorn-Garmley, 27, is accused of failing to provide proper sustenance to the animals over a period of time, according to the Saratoga County Sheriff’s Office.

The case originated from a complaint that Milton Animal Control Officer Dave Drozinski received on Sept. 26 about a loose dog. Following an investigation, the animals were found in a malnourished state.

Hagadorn-Garmely was charged with a misdemeanor of animal neglect and released on an appearance ticket. She is due in Milton Town Court at a later date. The animals are at the Saratoga County Animal Shelter and receiving proper medical care.
