The Pima County Attorney has indicted three Northwest residents on felony animal cruelty charges.

The indictment stems from the arrests of Billy R. Jones, Wanda L. Jones and Robert Allen Jones.

On March 10, Pima County Sheriff’s deputies responded to a check welfare call on the 12000 block of West Manville Road in Avra Valley.

While there, deputies found hundreds of caged dogs living in the house. With help from Pima Animal Care and Humane Society of Southern Arizona workers, 851 dogs and 36 birds were removed from the house.

The county attorney charged the three suspects with 37 counts of cruel mistreatment of an animal, three counts of cruelty to animals and one count of fraudulent schemes or practices.
