GOOCHLAND, VA (WWBT) - The Goochland County Sheriff's Office has charged the owner of a dog rescue organization with animal cruelty.

NBC12 did a special investigation into the background of Annette Thompson following a fire at her home.

Thompson now faces five misdemeanor counts of animal cruelty. Five dogs were seized from her property - the dogs were euthanized due to their physical condition.

The five charges carry a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $2,500 fine on each charge. Thompson will be in court April 15.

Chris Thomas is looking into the charges and will have more information tonight on NBC12 News at 11.

So sad! Animals are suffering so much!I wish people change!
Hope authorities take action for all cruelty cases, especially when author is known. And when it is not, to make investigations!

Absolutely horrendous. Why rescue and then neglect? This is senseless and tragic.

Poor poor animals - we humans are just sickening - the atrocities the majority of humans inflict upon innocent and defenceless animals is beyond unforgivable.

I read a comment at the end of the story, where one person posted that maybe the lady was really trying to help, but got overwhelmed and things got out of hand. I could almost buy that except for the fact, if theses dogs were euthanized, they had to be in pretty bad shape. And that did not happen over night.

Animals always pay for the human cruelty and stupidity. Sadly noted and shared, thanks Phyllis.

Miserable.... but one bad apple does not mean the whole barrel is rotten - just because one person did things wrongly or got overwhelmed does not mean they all are, we should remember that.

TY Phyllis. I hope this bitch pays with much jail time. It's sickening to see how many animals are killed on a daily basis due to ignorance, cruelty and a total lack or morality on the part of monsters like these. When all the animals have been tortured/killed..who will be next. Makes you wonder
