- New York, USA -
Ontario County authorities arrested 36-years-old DANIELLE C. AMBROS.
On January 13, 2024, while the Ontario County Sheriff’s Office was investigating AMBROS’ involvement in an unrelated incident, Ontario County Humane Society, Happy Tails Animal Shelter became involved to assist with an animal cruelty investigation that implicated AMBROS.
It came to light that while AMBROS’ grandmother was hospitalized, AMBROS was supposed to care for her grandmother’s parrot and dog at the lady’s residence on 5546 Mobile Road in Canandaigua.
In a media release, Ontario County Humane Society, Happy Tails Animal Shelter identified the dog as a 17-year-old Jack Russell dog named Sampson, and the parrot as Squirt whose age is unknown.
The agency said that at some point, in November 2023, AMBROS stopped caring for Sampson and Squirt and both Voiceless Victims died on December 19, 2023. According to the media release, “both the dog and the parrot were deceased inside the residence in a decomposing state and they both appeared to have starved to death.”
Sampson and Squirt were buried in the backyard of the residence. Authorities exhumed them and took their bodies to the Cornell Animal Diagnostic Lab for necropsies.
AMBROS, of Rochester, was arrested on February 2, 2024, and charged with misdemeanor cruelty to an animal and misdemeanor failure to provide food and water to an impounded animal.
AMBROS was released on a ticket to appear at Canandaigua Town Court at a later date.
The Ontario County Sheriff’s Office tells me there isn’t a booking photograph for AMBROS because she “was issued an appearance ticket and directed to get processed at the Jail on her own.”
