Megan Hartford of Hamilton Street Southwest says she’s finally had enough of her longtime friend and next-door neighbor, Tiffany Charlton, where Charlton’s treatment of animals is concerned.
“There needs to be repercussions because nobody should be able to get away with that,” Hartford said Wednesday, after agents with the Animal Welfare League of Trumbull County found five dead dogs and four dead kittens at Charlton’s 2518 Hamilton residence.
The Vindicator had interviewed Hartford in early October, a couple of weeks after the city’s health department and animal-control officer ordered Charlton’s property cleaned up — and for Charlton to reduce her animals from 11 dogs to four. At the time, Hartford said false accusations were made against Charlton and her boyfriend, Michael Kelley, and that Charlton cared about the dogs found malnourished at her house.
But after Wednesday’s revelations, Hartford said there’s no excuse.
“No animals should go through that,” Hartford said. “It’s wrong. Something has to be done.”
