Ohio: Cari Welk, 23, and Travis Wargo, 22, will be on probation for five years for abusing and neglecting their pets

OHIO -- Although Cari Ann Welk pleaded guilty to Animal Cruelty back in September, this mugshot was just posted. 

Holland & Muirden, Attorneys at Law posted: State of Ohio v. Travis Wargo and Cari Welk, a case prosecuted for Lake Humane Society.

Travis Wargo and Cari Welk both pleaded guilty to animal neglect.

The case involved two cats, Liam and Logan, and a dog, Lily, that were kept in deplorable conditions.

The animals suffered from various untreated medical conditions. While the other animals were of good weight, Liam the cat was so painfully emaciated that when offered dog treats by the Humane Agent, he scarfed them so fast he was throwing up while he was eating them.


Both Defendants were sentenced to 5 years of probation, during which time they cannot own or harbor any animals. Lake Humane Society will conduct inspections to ensure compliance.

Wargo and Welk will have to pay court costs and $3,030.00 in restitution for care of the animals to Lake Humane. Both Wargo and Welk were sentenced to serve 4 days in jail or complete 4 days of community work service.

Wargo and Welk were also ordered to spend 60 days in jail on a child endangerment charge.
