Ossipee police arrested Laurinda Miller, 51, and charged her with 21 counts of animal cruelty.
A majority of the animals were released by the Sweet Tails Animal Rescue board of directors and are being made available for adoption by the NH Humane Society in Laconia and the Conway Area Humane Society in Conway.
Why aren't these board of director members also being charged with cruelty? They are ultimately responsible for what Laurinda Miller was doing...
A petition was filed to release custody of the dogs, but the court has not yet issued a decision.
Ossipee police made attempts to have Miller voluntarily relinquish custody of the dogs, but she has not done so.
Miller is scheduled to appear at Ossipee District Court on Sept. 2. She will not be permitted to have any animals in her custody while on bail.
