A man was arrested on Monday in Southeast Washington and charged with four counts of animal cruelty for failing to provide proper space and veterinary care for his animals.
According to the Humane Rescue Alliance, Michael Gibson was arrested after a month long investigation. The Humane Law Enforcement officers rescued 42 animals – 36 dogs including 33 Great Danes, one Doberman, one pit bull type dog, one Chihuahua mix and six rabbits from the home under a search and seizure warrant.
An investigation had been underway after an anonymous tip about the number, type and well-being of animals in Gibson’s home.
“In many instances, multiple Great Danes were confined to one small cage, forced to live amongst their own waste and sleep on a concrete floor. Blood and feces covered the walls. The animals did not have access to food or water. The smell of ammonia and feces overwhelmed the rescuers. Humane Law Enforcement officers uncovered evidence relating to the sale of animals. The officers also discovered the remains of several puppies in a mini refrigerator,” the rescue organization posted on their social media page.
The rescued animals are in the care of HRA at an undisclosed location and are receiving necessary medical and behavioral treatment. HRA anticipates caring for the animals for months as the criminal case develops.
