A Clifton Springs man is facing charges after officials say he left a dog outside without shelter or food. 

On Oct. 5, the Ontario County Humane Society responded to a complaint at the Spring Brook Mobile Home Park. According to the complaint, the dog had been tied up outside without shelter, food or water.

Upon arrival, officials say they found a two-year-old pit bull, lying in a hole he had dug. A neighbor provided water for the dog, named Kane.

The Humane Society says Kane had a severe ear infection, and that his left ear canal was completely swollen shut. Officials removed Kane so his ear could be operated on. 

The dog’s owner, 41-year-old Charles Drover, was arrested and charged with failure to provide sustenance to an animal, not providing shelter to an animal left outside, and having an unlicensed and unvaccinated dog.  He was issued an appearance ticket and will appear in Manchester Town Court at a later date to answer the charges.  

Kane is currently being cared for by the Humane Society.
