ONEONTA – An Oneonta man was arrested and charged with torturing animals after Otsego County sheriff’s deputies rescued his four emaciated pigs Monday from an un-insulated shed on Fisk Road in Laurens.

Jared J. Talbot, 21, was arrested today following a civilian complaint that led deputies to his property, where four pigs were found living without food or water and in an improper shelter.

4 Pigs Found In Shed

On Morris Dirt Road

With crushed apples, two of four pigs rescued this afternoon are tempted out of a trailer into the Susquehanna Animal Shelter by Director Stacie Hayes and Alex McMillan, of the Leatherstocking Veterinary Services, New Berlin. The pigs were rescued after the Otsego County Sheriff’s Department notified the shelter that the emaciated animals were being kept in a shed without food or water, covered in mud and feces. The animals will be kept at the shelter for the time being, until a pig rescue organization can pick them up. (Libby Cudmore & Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Fly Creek Woman Claims 1st Doggie

Fly Creek Woman

Claims 1st Doggie

15 Line Up To Adopt  Lhaso Apsos

Carol Boulay, a Fly Creek native now living in Davenport, lined up in the rain at 6:15 a.m. to be first in line to adopt one of the Lhasa Apsos among 53 surrendered to the Susquehanna Animal Shelter last week. She had pre-picked a name for her new pet: Suzy Q.  About 15 would-be pet owners – from as far away as Utica and Rome – were waiting in line when the shelter opened the adoption process shortly before noon, and were brought in, three at a time, to choose one of the dogs surrendered by a Milford woman when it was determined she could not properly care for them.  (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

Rescued Lhasa Apsos Up For Adoption Tuesday

26 Rescued Lhasa Apsos

Up For Adoption Tuesday

Stacie Haynes, executive director of the Susquehanna Animal Shelter, gives a kiss to Penny, one of the 53 Lhasa Apso puppies surrendered from a hoarding situation in Milford last Tuesday.  Twenty-six of the dogs will be available for adoption starting tomorrow at noon.  The shelter has received “hundreds” of calls from people seeking to adopt the little dogs; depending on the number of qualified potential owners who show up tomorrow, the Shelter may conduct a raffle, the director said. With limited space at the shelter, the other dogs were taken to shelters in Delhi, Sidney and Broome County to be placed for adoption there. (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)

SHELTER RESCUE 52 LHASA APSOS, SETTING RECORD

Milford Women Gives Up Dogs

SHELTER RESCUES

52 LHASA APSOS,

SETTING RECORD

Volunteers Betty Steele, Hartwick, left, and Arlene Nygren, Goodyear Lake, top photo, discuss how to handle a cage full of Lhasa Apsos, among 52 surrendered this morning by a Milford resident.  The dogs arrived shortly after 11 a.m. at the Susquehanna Animal Shelter in Hartwick Seminary, where they are being processed, and will then be washed and given shots.  At right, Bob Wood of Oneonta carries one of the dogs to the examination tabled, where Vet Tech Sara Haddad of Bainbridge was checking them out and registering them.  Shelter Executive Director Stacie Haynes said this is the largest single rescue in the shelter’s history.   The dogs, some inbred, were not abused, but were being treated for fleas, skin problems, “cherry eyes” and other ailments.   Since the animals were given up voluntarily, Haynes said she doesn’t expect any charges will be filed.   (Jim Kevlin/AllOTSEGO.com)
