A 20-year-old Sabina woman pled guilty to one charge of abandoning animals and two charges of prohibitions concerning companion animals in a court hearing in Washington C.H. Municipal Court Tuesday.
On July 13, the Fayette Regional Humane Society responded to an apartment in Washington C.H. after animals were allegedly found abandoned inside. A Humane Agent removed two cats and seven guinea pigs, with two guinea pigs dead. No food or water was found available for the animals.
Humane agents searched seven weeks for Taylor Stevens, and finally located her in Sabina where they served her with 21 charges.
She was ordered not to have animals for five years, given a 90-day jail suspension, probation, and $650 restitution to the Humane Society for animal care expenses.
The cats and the guinea pigs all found new homes through Society adoption program.
