GALENA, Mo. -- Sentencing is set for for 1 p.m,. today in Stone County for a woman convicted of animal neglect at her home near Galena.

The Humane Society of Missouri rescued several animals at Amy Allan's home  on a county road near Highway 248, just west of Galena in October.

Deputies found 15 dogs, 10 horses, 5 cats, a duck and one chicken -- all neglected on the property. At least two horses were found dead, in addition to a dog inside the home.

The Humane Society says seven of the horses were severely underweight and have had little access to food, fresh water, adequate pasture or veterinary care. The cats appear thin and many  of the dogs are tethered outside with little to no access to adequate food or clean water.

Stone County Sheriff Richard L. Hill said at the time of Allan's arrest in October investigators had attempted to contact Allan on several occasions in the months ahead of her arrest.

"Ms. Allan was made aware of the poor health conditions her animals were in and was advised to seek proper care and veterinary services in reference to these animals," Hill said. "Ms. Allan to date has been unable, or unwilling to do so."

The rescued animals were turned over to the Humane Society for care and adoption.
