North Carolina: Authorities believe Sandy Fore and Robert Fore - wanted for FELONY animal cruelty charges - are on the run with their 9-year-old grandson

NORTH CAROLINA -- The Henderson County Sheriff's Office is searching for a couple who are charged with several animal cruelty counts, including killing two animals by starvation.

Authorities believe Sandy Jean Fore, 56, and Robert Bryan Fore, 60, of Fletcher, have fled with their 9-year-old grandson and could be on their way to Texas, said Maj. Frank Stout, spokesman for the agency.


Sandy Fore and Bob Fore have each been charged with two felony counts of killing an animal by starvation, four felony counts of cruelty to animals, and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals, according to the Sheriff's Office. Investigators says there are more charges possible as the investigation continues.

Sandy Fore may be using the alias of Jeannie Fore or Jeannie Hughes, while Robert Bryan Fore may be using the alias of Tommy Fore or Bob Fore.


Sandy Fore surrendered 40 dogs and cats March 4 after Henderson County authorities investigated the discovery of dogs and cats that were living in what they described as “absolutely horrific” conditions.

A caller alerted authorities about the animals' welfare, and told authorities a family had moved and left the animals.

According to warrants, the Fores mistreated 32 animals.

The animals were discovered in two campers, an outbuilding and a home on the property, Stout said. Some were “running loose” and others were in cages.

A number of the animals were living in "incredibly appalling conditions," according to officials. “It was absolutely horrific the conditions that those animals were living in,” Stout said.


The animals were treated at a veterinary clinic, and animal welfare groups in the area are assisting the Henderson County Animal Shelter in caring for the animals.

If anyone has information concerning the Fores' whereabouts, contact the Henderson County Sheriff's Office at 828-697-4911.
