Officials with the Gerling Law firm worked the entire weekend on behalf of the Vanderburgh Humane Society, PC Pound Puppies, Henderson Humane Society, and It Takes a Village to get the paper work ready to be filed and issued today, Monday, July 24, 2017
This comes after a Vanderburgh County judge ruled that 21 of the 68 dogs confiscated from Crosley in February, be returned to Martha, who pled guilty on Friday to five counts of animal abuse.
Martha Crosley was cited in February, 2017 after animal control officers seized 68 dogs from her residence in a former church on Hillview Drive, where she had begun a dog sanctuary, but failed to maintain.
