INGHAM COUNTY, MI (WLNS) – A 32-year-old woman has been arraigned on animal cruelty charges after 124 cats were removed from a home in June.
The cats were found on June 10 in the 1700 block of Autumn Lane, near Groesbeck. Of the 124 cats, 99 were alive when rescued. Some cats were unhealthy and had to be put down, which left 29 survivors.
Amanda Price, from Lansing Township is facing two charges including abandoning/cruelty to 10 or more animals and killing/torturing.
Her bond is set at $1,000. She has been ordered not to be in possession of any animals and to allow surprise, unannounced inspections of any place she resides.
“We are really happy with the collaborative effort and with the relationship with the prosecutors office to get to this point,” said Andy Seltz, director, Ingham County Animal Control and Shelter.
Price’s preliminary conference and exam are scheduled for later in July.
At least three of the remaining 29 cats have been adopted.
