Dogs found chained together, starved in Newburgh Heights

Two people received animal cruelty charges in Newburgh Heights due to the treatment of their four dogs, two of which are puppies, according to Newburgh Heights police.

Jasmine Grays, 21, and Dion Harris, 22, both received a felony five charge when their dogs were found with no food or water, according to police. Officers said they were living in deplorable conditions, chained together by three inches with limited to no mobility. Two dogs were found in the attic, which was over 100 degrees, according to authorities. Police said the dogs were eating insulation when they arrived, because their owners hadn't been feeding them.

Thankfully, all four dogs are expected to survive, police said. They were taken to Pepperidge Kennels for care and will soon go to the Animal Protective League for adoption.

The Newburgh Heights Building Department reported the situation to police.
