ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  A Sumter County Pet Store owner charged with animal cruelty, is out of jail on bond Thursday.

The Jungle Pet Store owner Marjorie Davis was charged after investigators seized more than 80 dogs they said were living in deplorable conditions on her rural property. The dogs were seen by a Vet at the Sumter Humane Society. Most are suffering from neglect, have skin conditions, and were covered in fleas.

One of the pregnant dogs also gave birth Thursday. The Sumter Humane Society fears their food supplies will quickly dwindle with all the mouths to feed. Davis' pet store The Jungle remains open. More charges are pending.
