A veterinary hospital worker who neighbors and animal officials said had adopted several dogs and a cat out of compassion was charged Friday after police found neglected and dead pets in her Brentwood home and backyard.
Three dogs were found dead among four other starving dogs and one cat that were taken to the Town of Islip Animal Shelter, said police and officials from the Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
Third Precinct police officers went to the house at 118 Sycamore St. on Friday afternoon after an anonymous caller reported a foul smell and animals kept in deplorable conditions. Police contacted SPCA officials to rescue the remaining animals, they said.
