SOUTH BRISTOL, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Ontario County Humane Society seized nine dogs, 4 pigeons, 3 parrots, and a cockatiel from inside a condemned building in South Bristol on June 2. The outside of the property had 15 goats, a goose, and a duck.

Investigators said that Robbin Harvey, 60, and Robert Pool, 61, failed to provide for the around 40 animals on the property. They’re both charged with animal cruelty and failure to provide proper food and drink.

It all started when reports came in about poor living conditions for animals at the residence on Route 64. South Bristol Code Enforcement Office condemned the residence for being unsanitary and the Humane Society found the live animals, along with five dead goats and a dead chicken.

The Happy Tails Animal Shelter at 2976 County Rd. 48, Canandaigua, is requesting food donations for dogs, parrots and pigeons and cleaning supplies as the animals begin their rehabilitation.

This investigation is ongoing, and Harvey and Pool are slated to appear in South Bristol Town Court at a future date.
