CONYNGHAM TOWNSHIP, PA — John Dancho, Amanda Dancho, and Michelle Starkey are accused of leaving more than a dozen dogs in what humane officers called “deplorable” conditions.
The animals were rescued from a home near Hazleton last month.
A dozen felony counts are also included among the charges.
The charges are the result of new stricter animal cruelty laws and carry up to seven years in prison each.
