PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A Spring Valley man has been sentenced to three years of probation after pleading guilty to cruelty to animals.

Yavapai County Sheriff’s officials say 47-year-old Homer Nosack also has to pay $987 in restitution and is barred from caring for more than two properly licensed dogs.

A Dewey area veterinarian contacted the sheriff’s office after Nosack brought his dog in for treatment but claimed he couldn’t pay for it.

A sheriff’s animal control officer determined the injury to the dog’s neck was likely caused by the placement of a collar that had been neglected for an undermined length of time.

As a result of the neglect, the collar became embedded in the dog’s neck.

Authorities went to Nosack’s home and found two other dogs that appeared to be neglected.
