The warrants date back to 2011 when the couple neutered a dog and a kitten at their home, because the pet owners didn't want to pay a veterinarian. Both animals needed extensive surgery to repair the damage done.
The couple pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges, and before the final disposition of the case left for Florida. They recently returned to New York where they have been arrested and are now being held in the Warren County jail.
A court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
Spaying and neutering your pets are responsible aspects of dog and cat ownership. For the least expensive veterinarian services, check with your nearest humane organization. These are surgical procedures and should never be done by anyone else than a licensed veterinarian.
"Spaying or neutering is a one-time surgery with a one-time cost. But both procedures offer a lifetime of benefits. When it comes right down to it, if you can't afford to have your dog spayed or neutered, then you can't afford to have a dog," states Factmonster.com.
