Charleston woman sought by humane officers; facing 12 counts of animal cruelty

Local News

CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK) – For at least a week, six dogs, three adults, and three puppies, were living inside of a home in the 1900 block of Iris drive in Charleston.  They were abandoned, humane officers said. 

A concerned neighbor called humane officers and said 43-year-old Sandra Humphrey left them there. Investigators said the inside of the home is full of feces and urine.  The floor is so covered in urine, they said, that it was difficult to walk.

No water or food was anywhere to be found.  

Neighbors did not want to be interviewed on camera, but they tell me they felt they had to call in to report the neglect.  They added that they could hear the dogs whimpering and crying inside of the home.

Humphrey, who was last seen here at that address, is now facing 12 counts of animal cruelty, both for the abandonment of the dogs and leaving them with no food or water.

The good news now, according to that humane officer, is that the animals are safe and sound at Kanawha Charleston Humane Association. 

If you have any information as to where Humphrey could be, you’re asked to contact the non-emergency Kanawha County 911 number, which is 304-348-8111.
