There is an update on ZICHANG LI who was in court on Thursday, October 31.
The defendant entered a no contest plea to a misdemeanor animal abuse charge related to an incident that happened on September 13.
Her 1-year-old Rottweiler named Dollar was found in a cage underweight with no food and water.
Someone had alerted animal control to do a welfare check on the dog.
LI said that while she was away, she had left Dollar with someone.
Reportedly, officers worked with LI and established a regimen to nurse Dollar back to health, they even arranged veterinary visits, but the woman never took the hungry furbaby to a follow up appointment with the vet.
Eventually, the accused surrendered Dollar whose new name is now Rocky.
Thankfully, Rocky is in a new home with a family that gives him all the love he deserves and should have had to begin with.
As for ZICHANG LI, her sentencing hearing is set for December 19.
