CORBIN, Ky. (AP) - A former member of the Knox/Whitley Animal
Shelter board has been charged with 22 counts of animal cruelty and
three counts of endangering a minor after authorities found what
they called deplorable conditions at her home.
Authorities said they found 13 dogs and a cat inside the home of
Jennifer Adkins and then found seven dogs in cages and a goat
outside. Authorities said the cages and the house were filled dog
urine and feces.
The Corbin Times-Tribune reported Friday that Adkins' three
daughters, ages 17, 15, and 12, were removed from the home.
Shelter Board president Barbara Storms said the 29-year-old
Adkins had been on the board for only two months in 2008, and was
asked to resign.
The animals were taken to the Laurel County Animal Shelter.
