Dog Abuse Suspect Turns Herself In To Police

Days after more than one hundred dogs were found, living in filth at a home in Jackson County, a third suspect in the case has turned herself in. Amy Foust faces 115 counts of animal cruelty.

Police arrested her husband, Tim Foust, and another man at the home, Shawn Embs, on Tuesday. She was not arrested on Tuesday because the sheriff said he felt she needed to be with her young child at UK Hospital, who had a possible staph infection.

Right now, the dogs in question are still being cared for at the Grey Hawk Animal Center in Jackson County. They can be adopted as soon as investigators approve their release.

The Jackson County Sheriff says he hopes to get the proper paperwork filed, so adoptions can begin sometime next week.
