GEORGETOWN COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Deputies found skeletons of dogs as well as emaciated dogs and puppies at a Georgetown home which led to the arrest of a 24-year-old man.
Investigators arrested Steven Graham of Andrews. He faces 14 counts of animal cruelty after deputies reported locating dogs and puppies abandoned in poor health at a home on Voss Trail in Georgetown.
Officials with the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office said their deputies responded to the home after being alerted about dogs being left chained and in cages without food or clean water.
A report states one adult dog and seven puppies were left inside the mobile home while others were chained outside.
“They appeared emaciated, and some had sores,” GCSO officials said. “A number of dog skeletons were found in the yard.”
The dogs were taken to St. Frances Animal Center for treatment.
