A woman is facing multiple animal cruelty charges after 22 German shepherds were found living in wire pens inside of an unheated barn in Alexandria, New Hampshire. According to WMUR News, it was 11 degrees below zero when officials removed the dogs from the barn – it was so cold that the water was frozen and shavings in the dogs’ pens were completely frozen.

Woman charged after dogs rescued from cold barn

The dangerous situation has resulted in Jennifer Choate, a dog breeder, being hit with 22 counts of animal cruelty. Choate is also facing charges following the death of three dozen dogs, primarily puppies, who perished in two fires at her property in Bristol.

Dogs seized from the frigid barn were taken in by the New Hampshire SPCA – they join nine dogs previously seized from Choate’s property in Bristol. The woman accused of cruelty is due in court on January 22 for the Bristol case, and on February 12 for the most recent incident.

      And Pamela D – I would LOVE to help you give this miserable hunk of sewer slime the exact same treatment she gave to these dogs – this bitch is pitiful and a much as I hate these so called ‘breeders’ she is nothing more than an animal abuser and has proven it over and over – authorities will as usual turn a blind eye and give her little to no punishment. A severe dose of street justice is definitely called for.

    Well there is apparently an ISSUE with the Legal System in NEW Hampshire !!! BECAUSE WHY IN the HELL would the Law Enforcement ALLOW the adult German Shepard’s to REMAIN IN SUCH A HORRIFIC and UNSAFE environment !!! THIS BITCH DOES NOT give one RAT’s ASS about those animals only the profit with the least expense… She needs to be banned from EVER OWNING ANY TYPE OF ANIMAL & the AKC or other Registered Organization Notified of Her NAME .

    I want a female gs puppy if any have survived. I live in Mt. I will have spayed no papers needed won’t be breeding. I am blind in 1 eye and failing vision in other. This puppy will be trained to be my eyes. I live on 5 acres and would appreciate it if you would consider me for adopting one of these puppies. Please don’t give this person the right to own any animals ever again and she needs prison time.
