A Warwick, New York dog-sitter was arrested and charged with two counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty and confining an animal to a hot vehicle when two dogs died in her care.
Nancy Evans, 67, runs a pet-sitting service out of her home which is prohibited in the apartment complex in which she lives. But, it sounds more like she runs the service out of her car…
While Cody and Lola’s owner chose not to press charges against Evans, police gathered enough evidence from neighbors and witnesses to charge her.
One neighbor told News12 that she’d warned Evans about the dangers of leaving dogs in hot cars in the past, but that she wouldn’t listen. Others claimed to have seen dogs locked in Evans’ car multiple times, in both very hot and very cold days.
One witness told the Times Herald-Record that she saw 3 dogs locked in Evans’ car last month for over an hour. She knocked on Evans’ door and reminded her, warning her about the danger of leaving dogs in hot cars.
Evans is due in court later this month. She is facing up to a year in jail and penalties.
