Pet-shop owner charged with animal cruelty



“They were just soaked with urine all the time,” she said. “There were fleas. There were bulged bellies.”

After seeing what she described as poor conditions on her third visit, she went to City Police, showing them several photos she took with her cell phone that show the store’s puppies in a pen littered with feces.

After her family posted the pictures on Facebook, they went viral, compromising the investigation, Rock said.

When Rock heard of Staley’s arrest, she was relieved.

“I have goosebumps on my arms still,” she said Tuesday evening.
