Woman faces charges for letting dogs live in filth

Posted: Updated:
CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Franklin County woman is facing four charges of animal cruelty. She's accused of letting her two dogs live in filth inside an abandoned home in the 4000 block of Warm Spring Road in St. Thomas Township.

"They only survived because neighbors were feeding them," said Buck Hessler, Humane Society Officer.

Hessler said the dogs were living inside the home since May. The St. Bernard mix and Labrador-German Shepherd mix were in poor condition. One was infested with fleas.

"There was feces everywhere; on the couch, on the mattresses, on the floors. The stench was just unbelievable," Hessler said. "There was no place to lay down. Everything was full of feces. It was five inches deep."

The owner of the dogs, 23-year-old, Lacrisha Morgan, contacted Hessler after seeing her name in a newspaper. Hessler says he posted a note on the home back in May stating he needed to speak with her, but she never called.

"She claimed that she had to move out, and where she moved she wasn't able to take the dogs," Hessler said.

The dogs are staying at the Cumberland Valley Animal Shelter.
