FREETOWN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — A Freetown woman will be arraigned on 13 counts of animal cruelty after the MSPCA took custody of 27 animals from her home.
On January 9, the MSPCA's Law Enforcement Dept. entered the home on Howland Road to find grossly unsanitary conditions. Three dead dogs were discovered on the scene and most of the surviving 27 animals—18 goats and nine dogs—were emaciated.
The surviving animals were taken to MSPCA's Nevins Farm Adoption Center in Methuen. Their health improved and six of the dogs were placed in new homes. Two of the remaining three dogs are being treated for heartworm.
The arraignment for the previous owner of the animals, Miranda Rosyski, 21, will be at Fall River District Court on March 3.
