A second person has been charged in what animal control investigators called a shocking and disturbing case of cruelty to dozens of animals.
Peggy Bost, 64, now faces 35 counts of cruelty to animals. Her boyfriend, Troy Autry, was charged in the case in February.
A Rowan County Animal Control Officer told WBTV that his office received a complaint about conditions at the home. When the first officer arrived, she called for help, saying the conditions were "horrendous."
"The smell was so horrendous she called for back up," the officer told WBTV. "There was feces everywhere, three, four inches thick. The animals were in kennels so small that they couldn't move, it was unbelievable."
The first to arrive at the house was Dawn Hager, a Rowan County Animal Control Officer for just six months.
"There was feces everywhere, the smell of ammonia would knock you on your bottom, roaches everywhere," Hager told WBTV.
"I didn't see any dog food in bowls anywhere, two bowls of water in the kitchen, dogs in crates everywhere, nothing livable.
Bost, who was living at the home with Autry, was convicted of animal cruelty in 2002 after similar conditions were discovered. At the time Bost was ordered to get rid of the animals.
According to the current warrants, dozens of dogs and cats, and even a parrot, were found sick and starving at Autry's single wide mobile home along the 13400 block Highway 52 in Gold Hill.
