North Carolina: In 2003, AKC breeder Anita Brown was caught hoarding 97 animals inside her house. They let her plead guilty to ONE count of animal cruelty. Now she's been caught with nearly 40 animals in the same house of horrors. Good job Hanover County! Maybe if you'd been tougher with her back then, animals wouldn't have suffered and died for the last 14 years.

NORTH CAROLINA -- An animal cruelty investigation that began in March led to the arrest of a Wilmington woman Friday.

Anita Brown is charged with 37 counts of misdemeanor animal cruelty after 37 dogs were removed from her home in the 100 block of Fairford Road.


She was taken to the New Hanover County Detention Facility and given a $19,000 bond.

According to a release from the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office, Brown had been warned "on several occasions" that the dogs' living conditions in her home were not adequate.

 
 
 

In 2003, Brown was caught with nearly 100 animals inside this same house. She was breeding (and hoarding) Shelties and Whippets. She also had dozens of birds - parrots and cockatiels - living in squalor. Prosecutors, instead of doing their jobs and getting her on 97 counts of animal cruelty, let her plead to ONE COUNT of animal cruelty.

Officers with the NHCSO's Animal Services Unit executed the search warrant at Brown's home on Friday.

All the dogs were taken to the New Hanover County Animal Shelter. They will stay there until a decision is made when Brown has her trial.

This is an ongoing investigation.
