The Enterprise

An Idaho woman has been charged with 37 counts of cruelty to animals in connection with a dog rescue that has left a Malheur County shelter overflowing.

Kimberly L. Anderson of Weiser is scheduled to appear on the misdemeanor criminal charges in Washington County District Court on Tuesday, Aug. 22.

She also faces a petition from Washington County prosecutors that seeks forfeiture of the dogs.

Sheriff’s deputies found the dogs during a check at the Anderson home on Friday, Aug. 4. The dogs were seized and one gave birth, increasing the total dog count to 43. They are being kept at Ani-Care Animal Shelter south of Ontario.
