ATHENS, AL (WZDX) - Police have arrested two people for animal cruelty after finding two dogs that had starved to death in a rental home.
Athens police said Christopher Warren Adkins, 36, and Shannon Lynn Adkins, 35, were arrested yesterday on warrants for cruelty to animals.
Athens police said they received a call from a landlord March 20 who was inspecting the rental property on Lindsay Lane and found the two dead animals.
Police said the dogs had not been fed or watered in several days. In interviews with Christopher and Shannon Adkins, police said the two told them they intended to go back and get the dogs after moving out of the home, but they were unable to because they didn't have a car.
