An update on a story that we first told you about last week.  Justice Simone of Walker County faces four counts of cruelty to animals and four counts of abandonment of domesticated animals.  Law enforcement officials say that Simone is not currently in Walker County but multiple warrants have been issued for her arrests.  This comes after three dogs were left in a hot car for five days.  A fourth was found tied to a generator.  The dogs were taken to the Walker County Animal Shelter.  They have had their vaccines, flea and tick, de wormer and heartworm tested.  The animals are on the mend and will be available for adoption soon.  You can contact the Walker County Animal Shelter for more information if you would like to adopt one of the dogs.
