- Alabama, USA -
Deputies with the Colbert County Sheriff’s Office were investigating a shooting on Underwood Mountain Road in Tuscumbia, when they noticed dogs in poor health at a home in the neighborhood.
On Monday, June 13, deputies removed from a property on 1760 Underwood Mountain Road, 15 dogs who were malnourished and in need of medical attention.
The same week, on Friday, June 17, deputies returned to the home and with the assistance of Colbert County Animal Control, they served a search warrant and removed 18 more dogs and 2 cats.
Colbert County Sheriff Frank Williamson said this property is not related to the shooting incident.
Deputies arrested a male who gave a false name at first and identified himself as Jonathan Foster. Deputies later learned that the arrestee had given his brother’s name instead of his which is JASON DANIEL FOSTER (pictured).
FOSTER is facing a first-degree animal cruelty charge but Sheriff Williamson said more charges are expected to be filed against FOSTER.
He was taken to the Colbert County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
Sheriff Williamson thanked Corey Speegle and the Colbert County Animal Shelter for their help with this case.
Some of the animals have been taken to the Colbert County Animal Shelter, some are in the care of Friends of Florence Lauderdale Animal Shelter, while others are in foster homes and veterinarian’s offices.
The nonprofit Friends of Florence Lauderdale Animal Services posted a few pictures of the dogs removed from FOSTER’s home and in a Facebook post said: “We want to help our friends at Colbert County animal shelter raise $3000. These dogs are in need of a lot of care. Colbert animal shelter has had to take in many dogs this week who need help. Let’s help our neighbors out. Thank you.”
