Three people have been charged with animal cruelty after sheriff's deputies found two pitbulls locked in an unoccupied home in Ferndale.
Authorities believe the dogs were trapped in the room for a week and were standing in about an inch of feces on the floor.
On Wednesday, Roszida Fore, 31, and Sean Patterson, 37, both of Monticello, and Alycia Kuhlman, 21, of Liberty were charged with failing to provide food and water, a misdemeanor under the NYS Agriculture and Markets Law.
On Sept. 5, deputies got a tip that the dogs had been abandoned and ultimately located the three living elsewhere.
They denied owning the dogs but the sheriff's department had investigated in January another animal abuse complaint involving the same people, Chief Art Hawker said.
Fore and Patterson were former tenants and Kuhlman kept a dog there, sheriff's deputies say. Fore and Patterson indicated they had moved away a month ago, Hawker said.
The animals were turned over to the Town of Liberty dog control officer. The sheriff's office is investigating the possibility that the dogs were used for fighting.
The three were issued appearance tickets and released.
