A Palm Beach County couple is facing cruelty to animals charges when their pit bulls were allegedly discovered inside of an apartment, malnourished and living in dirty conditions.
The dogs were reportedly found in their own filth. The police determined that the dogs had been neglected and left alone in the apartment.
Animal cruelty can be a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the level of harm to the animal.
