The accused, Cory Dewberry, of Dewberry K-9 Kennel in Pickerington, OH is facing 70 misdemeanor charges, including 22 counts of cruelty to animals, 15 counts of abandoning animals and prohibitions companion animals after a search of his Fairfield County kennel revealed seven dogs living in deplorable conditions.

During the search on March 15, deputies found that the kennel was not in compliance with current licensing and permits. Deputies reported the kennel conditions were unsanitary, and the dogs appeared to be neglected.

"It's especially disturbing because these were dogs that had been brought to him and he was trusted in taking care of those dogs and training them, and then to have them be in that condition is really disturbing," said Humane Agent Bill Huffman.

Six dogs were seized by the Fairfield County dog warden and the remaining dogs were picked up by their owners.

A seventh dog, owned by Dewberry, remains at the humane society. Other dogs remain missing.

 

In February 2009, HB 70 'Nitro's Law' was introduced and passed the Ohio House of Representatives and was assigned to the Ohio Senate's Criminal Justice Commitee for consideration and for nearly 1 year this landmark Bill was grossly ignored by the Ohio Senate and on December 31, 2010, Nitro's Law legislative window of opportunity ran out. House Bill 108, has been now renamed HB90 and now in 2013, we are pushing harder than ever to have HB90 passed. Had Nitro's Law been passed prior, Dewberry would be facing 70 felonies rather than misdemenaor charges.

DEWBERRY'S court date is scheduled for May 9th, 2013, 9am.

      I've begun to believe that innocent animals are the superior race; even more after learning of this! Any one who can carry out this deplorable behavior SHOULD be convicted on felony charges. When it comes to defenseless children, elderly people, and animals, I have no empathy OR sympathy for this type of "being". PLEASE PASS HB90!

      Cruelty to helpless, living beings is inexcusable. If he wants to abuse something, he should abuse his automobile, or his lawnmower, or his cellular phone--any Thing but no living being!
