Days after an animal control officer in Columbia County, Pennsylvania resigned her position, authorities seized dozens of dogs and cats from her home.
Jinece Loughry suddenly resigned her position in Berwick last week.
Her small house on Thirteenth Street was filled with 40 dogs and 24 cats, WNEP reported.
“I wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. It makes me very sad because you realize she had a good heart and was an animal lover who has gotten herself way out of line,” said Linda Bird with the Animal Resource Center.
The center near Millville is now home to twice as many dogs after taking in the 33 that were seized from the home.
Bird said the dogs were dirty and matted, and some could barely walk because the animal waste was so thick.
Loughry was allowed to keep a few animals that she or family members personally owned, WNEP reported, and so far, no charges have been filed.
