The Washington County/Johnson City Animal Shelter is so full officers could not take custody of 70 dogs found living in filthy conditions at a local breeding business.

Barbara Perry Christian, 55, 166 Buttermilk Road, Gray, was issued 70 citations — 35 for animal cruelty and 35 for not having up to date rabies shots for her adult dogs — last week.

The investigation began after Animal Control received an anonymous tip about the problems at Christian’s breeding business, Barbara’s Breeding Palace.
