BROOKS, OR (KPTV) -
A woman operating what she described as an animal rescue organization is facing neglect charges after deputies raided Willamette Valley Animal Rescue in Brooks.
Marion County Sheriff's deputies said 24-year-old Alicia Inglish is the president of the rescue facility. They arrested her Sunday morning when she showed up at the rescue building with four dogs.
Inglish was arraigned in court Monday and charged with 10 counts of animal neglect and attempted tampering with evidence. Her bail was reduced to $55,000.
She was originally arrested and charged with 120 counts of animal neglect with bail set at $300,000. She is due back in court Jan. 22.
Deputies said they found more than 140 dogs in various stages of care at her facility. Some of the dogs were freely running around the building, while others were caged in wire dog runs.
Deputies said they found several dog transportation carriers with as many as four dogs inside, despite the carriers only being intended for one animal.
A Marion County Sheriff's spokesman said deputies found "no food available to the animals and the little water we found in the cages was undrinkable due to garbage and foreign objects spoiling it."
Many dogs appeared to be extremely underweight, deputies said, and others appeared sick, with some animals' eyes sealed shut with body fluids.
The building had no staff on site, and one dog had his head stuck in the wire cage after trying to get out, deputies said. Many of the cages were filled with animal feces and urine, the sheriff's office said.
Deputies said they expect to make more arrests.
Inglish's company is listed on Petfinder.com as a volunteer organization that aims to find homes for hard-to-place dogs. Deputies started investigating after getting a number of complaints about the care of the animals and the conditions of the facility.
Dr. Kris Otteman, a veterinarian with the Oregon Humane Society, described the condition of the animals as "terrible."
"They are lacking the basic care needed to survive," Otteman said. "I found no food available to them and the water in their cages was filled with stench. I saw one animal stuffed into a cage that was so small he was unable to lie down, sit or stand up."
The animals taken from Inglish's facility have been taken to a number of area animal care facilities, including the Oregon Humane Society.
The arrival of the rescued pets has put the OHS at double its capacity for dogs. With more than 80 dogs available for adoption, OHS Director Sharon Harmon is urging the public to adopt a dog now and help relieve crowded conditions at the shelter. OHS is also reducing the price of all dogs one year and older to $50 through the end of January.
