Earlier this month, Loretta Parsons of Grayson County, Virginia, was arrested and charged with 24 counts of animal cruelty, 16 counts of no tags, and 16 counts of no vaccinations. This having to do with the atrocious conditions under which she ran her puppy mills.
On November 9th, officials seized 24 Boston Terriers and Pugs and 8 puppies. Veterinarian Donald Fincher who examined the dogs said that they were living in “horrible shelter conditions.”
Since then, new charges have been levied against Loretta Parson. Already facing 56 charges, she will now be facing an additional 8 more animal cruelty charges after three of the puppies removed have died. Each is a class one misdemeanor that carries up to a year in jail.
The Veterinarian overseeing the case tells us the three puppies who died suffered from “severe malnutrition” and some of the pot bellied puppies were filled with parasites inside them.
