The founder of a Windsor rescue group is facing three additional provincial animal cruelty charges after nine dogs were seized.

Windsor/Essex County Humane Society officers have laid the charges against a Windsor woman in relation to the alleged neglect of nine dogs under her care as part of Royals Animal Rescue Service.

"The three charges are one relating to failing to comply with standards of care and adequate and appropriate food and water also adequate and appropriate ventilation and sanitary conditions and the third is failing to comply with an order issued under the OSPCA Act," says humane society executive director Melanie Coulter.

On June 11, the unidentified woman was also charged with two counts of permitting an animal to be in distress, two counts of failing to provide adequate and appropriate veterinary care, and one count of failing to comply with orders under the Ontario SPCA Act.

It is believed the rescue operated out of a home on Howard Avenue.

It is the policy of the humane society not to publish the names of individuals charged until there has been a conviction.

All nine dogs seized by the humane society are being held under court order until the resolution of the matter.
