A Millsboro man faces charges in connection with what an animal welfare services investigator calls one of the worst neglect cases the agency has ever seen.
Atwood Timmons II of Millsboro is charged with 18 counts of animal cruelty and other violations related to lack of care of the dogs.
14 neglected dogs were seized from the Millsboro property last Wednesday, and Timmons was charged two days later.
Some of the dogs needed emergency veterinary care. They and the others, some of which were malnourished or had parasites or other symptoms of neglect, are now being cared for by the Brandywine Valley SPCA.
Four deceased dogs also were found.
