Wasting Away: Low-Life Lorain Woman Accused Of Starving Dogs, Puppy

LORAIN, OH (WOIO) - The alleged actions of a Lorain woman sure to make any animal lovers blood boil.

Jaime Chandley arrested for three counts of cruelty to animals.

This, after officers found two emaciated adult dogs and a puppy covered in dog feces in an outside kennel. The outside kennel did not have insulation to keep the animals warm from the declining elements.

The officers believed the dogs would not have survived the week had they not been rescued from the Eagle Avenue house on Christmas Day.

Chandley - who breeds dogs - admitted one of the adult dogs also suffered injuries after getting into a fight over food with the other starving dog.

Chandley bonded out the same day she was arrested. She ponied up nearly $3 grand to gain her freedom.

The dogs, meanwhile, are receiving treatment from Dr. Wood at the Lorain Animal Clinic. The adult male and puppy are responding well to treatment but the adult female is not doing well. She is unable to eat and Dr. Wood is not sure if she will survive.

Dr. Wood provides all treatment to the animals out of his own pocket. If you would like to make a donation to this cause, you may do so:
