A Farmington man is facing animal cruelty charges following an investigation on Third Street.
According to the Ontario County Humane Society, someone reported a dog that was locked in a shed and could be heard barking by neighbors. The Humane Society investigated and determined that a four-year-old Pitbull named Blade was locked in a shed without food or water. Officials say Blade was inside a wire metal cage without any bottom, bedding, or other insulation.
Humane Society officials say there was also little ventilation in the area, which was filled with urine and feces. Officials say the temperature in the shed was 37 degrees.
The dog’s owner, 27-year-old Marcos Perez, was charged with failure to provide sustenance to a confined animal and cruelty to an animal. Humane Society officials took the dog and are providing care.
Perez will appear in Farmington Town Court at a later date to answer the charges.
