OAK HILL – Charges will be filed in an alleged animal neglect case in Fayette County.

According to Oak Hill Police, paperwork will be filed in the investigation of animal abuse.

Police say the owner will have four warrants out for her arrest by this evening. Officials say she is an employee of the Fayette County Humane Society.

Oak Hill PD, animal control, and the Sheriff's Department were called to a trailer at the Rosedale mobile home park in Oak Hill Monday night after neighbors called the cops complaining about the smell and barking dogs.

What police found inside was a case of neglect and abuse.

“They looked like it could possibly be animal cruelty,” says Oak Hill Police, Chief Michael Whisman, “And upon the investigation today it was determined that there will be charges brought fourth against the owner.”

Officials say animal control took multiple dogs and cats from the trailer and left one dog with the owner.
