According to a March 19 report by Fox Carolina News, additional charges have been filed against a South Carolina woman after dozens of dogs were removed from her property, with bond being set at $186, 795.
While conducting the welfare check, it was discovered Sheridan was in possession of a controlled substance, which led to her arrest.
Lt Cole said each ill-treatment charge will be considered separately and carries a fine of up to $500 and up to 60 days in jail. She remains in jail on $186,795 bond.
Jessica Cwynar Director with Anderson County P.A.W. reported the Anderson shelter was told to prepare to take in at least 50 animals. The condition of these animals is unknown at this time.
To learn how you can help the shelter, please keep an eye on their Facebook page, as calls for help from the community are posted here. One way the community can help is by adopting one of the dogs already at the Anderson shelter, as this will help prevent dogs seized from Sheridan’s property from being euthanized.
This is a major step in the right direction for the animals living in Anderson County and sends the message that animal abusers will no longer be tolerated.
