No prosecution for woman with 104 Chihuahuas

February 3, 2021

The Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office decided not to press charges against a woman who kept 104 full bred and mixed Chihuahuas at her home in Lompoc. Instead, the animal hoarding suspect was asked to get counseling. [Independent]

Last October, a concerned citizen informed authorities of the hoarding at the woman’s home. Animal control officers inspected the home and found no signs of neglect of abuse.

However, the woman had violated regulations regarding the number of dogs a person can have without a kennel permit.

It took a team of 12 veterinarians, animal control staff and volunteers more than 12 hours to inspect and transport the dogs to animal shelters in the area.

No abuse or neglect that’s pretty impressive. At least there were no dead dogs in her freezer…yeah, I remember all about that one.

Certainly less than 103 Dalmatians. Is Cruella Pelosi picking on Chihuahuas?

Stupid comment JE. So you are a frantic partisan of the thankfully gone failed and disgraced orange head, maybe you could write your own article to rant about those trying to repair the damage after 4 years of carnage.

I applaud the woman who took good care of those darlings.
