Troopers: Neglect complaints at Montgomery County kennel unfounded
ROOT State police in Fonda have investigated allegations of animal neglect at a Montgomery County kennel, but said they have found nothing to validate those complaints.
Troopers said in a news release today they worked with the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office to investigate the complaints about a kennel in the town of Root, but several visits to the kennel have not revealed any violations of state law or local codes. The owner of the kennel has provided shelter, food and heated water, as required, troopers said.
Troopers said they are continuing to monitor the health and well-being of the dogs and are consulting with local animal welfare authorities as needed.
