Pet Rescue Owners Charged For Animal Neglect

(Portland, OR)  --  The owners of a Northeast Portland pet rescue, boarding and daycare facility are facing criminal charges for animal neglect.  Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt says Tori Head and Samantha Miller have each been indicted on 157 counts of animal neglect, 13 counts of identity theft and 15 counts of forgery.  The investigation started last summer with multiple complaints about the conditions at Woofin Palooza on Northeast 82nd Avenue.  A county inspection officer found the facility overwhelmed with dogs and cats crammed into filthy kennels.  Officials seized 117 animals, some of which have since died.  Court documents say the owners were also falsifying vaccination documentation for adopted animals.
