One of three dogs removed from a home in Pinellas Park is loaded into an Animal Services vehicle Friday afternoon. The owner is being charged with 10 counts of animal abandonment
PINELLAS PARK – An 80-year-old woman will be charged with 10 counts of animal abandonment, resulting from an investigation by Pinellas County Animal Services and Pinellas Park police.

Pinellas Park PD announced Friday afternoon that they were on scene with Animal Services staff at a home on 102nd Terrace North in rsponse to reports that dogs and cats living there were malnourished and not receiving proper care.

At that time, police reported that six cats and three dogs had been removed from the residence. The dogs appear to be malnourished due to their weight and overall appearance, the report said.

“There are more animals still in the home that animal control believes are in the walls or the ceiling,” the police report said. “It is believed that there may be animals buried in the backyard of the home. This has yet to be confirmed.”

About three hours later, Pinellas Park PD reported that Edna Carr would be charged with 10 counts of animal abandonment.

Florida Statute defines abandon as to “forsake an animal entirely or to neglect or refuse to provide or perform the legal obligations for care and support of an animal by its owner.”

By law, animal owners must provide sufficient food, water and exercise.
