An Indiana woman was arrested and charged with animal cruelty after authorities found more than 100 dogs in her home. 50 year old Donna Montoya was arrested Wednesday and charged with 11 misdemeanor counts of animal neglect and three misdemeanor counts of harboring a non-immunized dog. Police served a search warrant January 11th after Montoya’s neighbors complained to the Porter County Health Department they feared excessive animal waste around her Westchester Township home was contaminating their drinking water supply. At that time, police confiscated 55 dogs, many with fleas and some infected with parvovirus. Police returned the following day and took another 27 dogs from the home, leaving 20 dogs in the house. On Wednesday, animal control officers removed the remaining dogs from the house. Montoya is being held without bond, pending an initial court hearing.
