A.N.N.A. Shelter still treating dogs from Erie dog fight

Local News

The A.N.N.A. Shelter is still treating and housing seven dogs after a dog fight earlier this month on Erie’s west side.

The A.N.N.A. Shelter received seven of the 14 dogs that were taken from a home after reports that dogs were fighting at 1047 W. 28th St. on Aug. 1.

Police arrested Danny Swift, 41, and charged him with with multiple felony counts of animal fighting, as well as cruelty to animals and possession of animal fighting paraphernalia. 

Ruth Thompson-Carroll, executive director of the A.N.N.A. Shelter,  said two of the dogs are still being treated in the hospital facilities while the other five are in good condition, remaining at the shelter until future notice.

“Just the fact that these are really nice dogs, and what sucks is that even though they’re considered evidence, I mean their dogs you know, they don’t want to be here … they want to be home,” Thompson-Carroll said.

The dogs will be held at the A.N.N.A. shelter until after the court proceedings.
