Suspects in Edmonds dog abuse case charged with animal cruelty

We received an update late Wednesday night from the Edmonds Police regarding their investigation into alleged animal cruelty at a house in the 23600 block of 76th Ave. W., following a You Tube video taken at the residence that showed several dogs appearing to attack another dog.

Edmonds police spokesman Sgt. Mark Marsh said that the dogs’ owner, Rose Adams — who is already being held in Snohomish County Jail on charges of exceeding the City of Edmonds’ five-dog limit — was also charged with two misdemeanors of animal cruelty.

A man known to live with Adams is also being charged with one misdemeanor count of animal cruelty and was booked into the Snohomish County Jail, Marsh said. His name was not immediately available Wednesday night.

“Edmonds Police Department Animal Control Officers assisted by Edmonds police detectives established enough probable cause for these charges after going over numerous pieces of evidence, statements and videos,” Marsh said. “The dogs that were taken from the house are still being held pending outcome of the investigation.”

Two of the 14 dogs are still undergoing medical treatment at a local veterinary clinic but are expected to make a full recovery, he added.
