Thursday, January 20, 2022 - A Muldrow couple, Cody, 27, and Amanda Boyd, 28 are facing felony charges of cruelty to animals after law enforcement were tipped off about the mistreatment.
On Monday, January 3 the Muldrow Police Department received an email alerting them to possible mistreatment of animals at a Mulrow residence.
The following day authorities drove by the residence and observed several dogs on the outside of the premises that appeared thin. There was also no visible source of food or water.
Officers were given additional information that there were several other animals inside the home.
After obtaining a search warrant, officers returned to the residence on January 6. Authorities seized 26 adult dogs, young dogs, puppies, one cat and one rabbit. There were other cats believed to be in the home but due to clutter they could not be located.
The animals were moved to AHIMSA care to have their condition assessed and to be given food and water. According to the police report, the dogs acted as if "it had been weeks since they were fed."
The couple each face one felony count of cruelty to animals. The crime is punishable by a fine of up to $5,000 or imprisonment for up to 5 years, or both.
