Beaver County Humane Society rescues 11 dogs in Beaver Falls


BEAVER FALLS – After police discovered 11 dogs in what they described as “deplorable conditions,” the Beaver County Humane Society has taken the animals into their care and charged the owners with animal cruelty.

Humane officers charged Beaver Falls residents Brittany Sanner, 34, and Essence Jackson, 23, with multiple felony and misdemeanor animal cruelty charges on Tuesday afternoon. The two were arrested after a group of 11 dogs were rescued from negligent living conditions, with many of the animals lacking access to food or water while under their care.

“It was clear to our officers that these animals needed to be immediately removed from the filthy environment where they were living so they could receive medical treatment and care,” said Susan Salyards, executive director of the BCHS. “A number of the dogs were dehydrated, underweight, and are suffering from medical issues including overgrown nails and dirty coats with fecal staining and a stale odor of urine.”
