Jalene D. Scribner, 31, of 9081 Arthur Jenkins Road, Lenox, was charged with cruelty to animals under the state Agriculture and Markets Law, a misdemeanor.

On Dec. 10 the Lenox animal control officer went to Scribner's home for a report of a dog left outside without proper food, shelter and water.

State police said Scribner, the homeowner, was advised by the animal control officer of the laws concerning animal welfare and given a warning about the dog.

Authorities later conducted several checks at the residence.

On Tuesday the animal control officer and state troopers found the dog, a 4-year-old Pit bull/Beagle mix, chained up on the back porch without any food, water, or shelter, state police said.

Authorities seized the dog and took it to Wanderers Rest Humane Association.

Scribner was arrested Thursday. She was issued an appearance ticket for Lenox Town Court on Tuesday.
