MIO, Mich. (AP) - Four family members have pleaded guilty to charges after officials say more than 50 dogs were seized from a home in Michigan’s northern Lower Peninsula during an animal cruelty investigation.
The Grand Rapids Press (https://bit.ly/1PicYCx ) reports Bradford Quick, Pennie Quick, Noralea Quick and Danielle Quick pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of cruelty or abandonment of 10 or more animals. Four more cruelty or abandonment charges will be dismissed at sentencing March 21.
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says the dogs were removed in December from the home in the Oscoda County community of Mio. The ASPCA says it’s believed a puppy mill was being operated out of the home.
The animals are being sheltered by the ASPCA until they are ready for adoption.
