Dogs found in accused cruelty offender's home

Bodies of several dogs found in home of repeat cruelty offender

Dogs, both neglected and dead, were recently discovered in the home of a Florida woman who has previously been charged with animal cruelty. According to Monday’s Palm Beach Post,  56-year-old Dolores Saverese was arrested over the weekend on charges of animal cruelty following the discovery of multiple dead dogs, and several alive and suffering signs of neglect.

Saverese has been in trouble for animal cruelty in the past – according to the Sun-Sentinel, in 2008 authorities called to her home after receiving a cruelty complaint discovered 23 dogs who were living in squalor. The incident resulted in Saverese being placed on probation for a year.

The most recent arrest and cruelty charges took place after animal care and control officials went to Saverese’s Boca Raton home on August 22 following a tip received via an anonymous phone call. Responding officers discovered multiple deceased dogs (the number is unconfirmed) and dogs who were living in deplorable conditions which have been described as consistent with hoarding. The dogs who survived the squalid conditions were suffering from infections, matted, filthy fur and skin abrasions.

Saverese was arrested and then released on $24,000 bail.

    WHY do they continue to let these people off with ‘probation’? Doesn’t that also imply some kind of supervision, as in the authorities actually checking in on her and making certain she isn’t doing something like this again? Shouldn’t they check in from time to time REGARDLESS of how much time has elapsed since her probation ended knowing that she will continue to abuse helpless animals? This should be a no brainer……. Hoarders might think they’re helping, but not everyone given the name ‘hoarder’ is one: sometimes they’re abusers, and knowingly so.

    It’s liberal Florida. She will get probation again because these idiots in Florida can’t give out meaningful sentences. If she has a criminal history she should have already been in jail. She shouldn’t be allowed to have any animals, what else do you assholes in Florida need to know?
