A man in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, has been arrested and charged following the discovery of two neglected dogs at his home. The Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office issued a news release about the arrest of 35-year-old Anthony L. Jamison, writing:
On September 14, Berkeley County Animal Control received a call for service from a concerned citizen regarding a welfare check on dogs at a residence on Frazier Hill Drive in the Moncks Corner area of Berkeley County. The Animal Control Deputy located two dogs changed up at the residence. One dog was chained up to a tree in front of the residence and the second dog was chained up at the side of the residence.
According to the authorities, the dogs did not have access to food, or clean water. The Sheriff’s Office writes:
The dog that was chained up in front of the residence, Rosie, was extremely emaciated and in very poor health. The dog that was chained up at the side of the residence, Violet, was also emaciated and in poor health. Violet also had an embedded collar.
Detailing the charges and fate of the dogs who were at Jamison’s residence:
Due to the dog’s living condition and their health, the Berkeley County Animal Control took the dogs into Emergency Protective Custody and notified Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division, who took over the case. Through the investigation and prior call history, Jamison was identified as the owner of the dogs. Detectives then obtained two arrest warrants for Jamison for Ill-Treatment of Animals.
