CORNWALL – A Cornwall woman has been banned from owning, caring for or living with animals after two dogs were rescued from filthy conditions.

Stacey Levac pleaded guilty to three counts of animal cruelty in a Cornwall court on Tuesday last week (July 12).

Two emaciated dogs – a female Boxer-type and a female Terrier-type – were found June 3, 2016 in flea infested conditions in a local home after investigators executed a search warrant, the SPCA said.

“They had no food or water and were living in filthy conditions, with garbage, feces and clothing scattered throughout the house. The dogs were removed and immediately taken to a veterinary clinic,” the SPCA said in a release.

The dogs have since been adopted.

In addition to the two decade animal ban, Levac is under two years probation and has to pay a $300 fine as well as make $1,207.37 restitution to the Ontario SPCA for the veterinary care.
