The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office says a Town of Galen couple was arrested on an animal abuse charge following an investigation that took place at a residence in Arcadia.
Deputies were assisted by Arcadia Town Code Enforcement, a Wayne County Animal Cruelty Investigator and a Veterinarian Technician.
Deputies charged Nicholas J. Rosario, 24, and Darlene H. Humby, 41, both of 92 West Dezeng Street in the Village of Clyde. They were charged with Overdriving, Torturing and Injuring Animals; Failure to Provide Proper Sustenance in violation of the New York State Agriculture and Markets Law 353.
It is alleged that several animals at the residence were neglected and living without food or water. Eight cats, three dogs, and seven puppies were seized and turned over to the Wayne County Humane Society for care.
Nicholas Rosario and Darlene Humby were transported to the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office for processing and released on appearance tickets.
They are set to appear before the Town of Arcadia Court at a later date and time to answer to the charges.
