PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A prominent Pittsburgh attorney has been charged with dozens of counts of sexually abusing his dog.
Attorney Ivan DeVoren is accused of sexually abusing his dog.
Police have charged DeVoren, a Pittsburgh environmental lawyer, with 10 felony counts of aggravated animal cruelty, 10 counts of sexual intercourse with an animal, and possession of heroin, cocaine and marijuana.
Police say DeVoren sexually abused his dog, Snoopy, a 6-month-old yellow lab. DeVoren lives and works in his apartment in Azimuth Court in Highland Park.
According to detectives, a witness told them they overheard the sexual abuse happening at least 10 times.
Back in 2014, DeVoren spent five months volunteering at Humane Animal Rescue as a dog walker.
“What our dog walkers do is they work on a team, getting our shelter animals out for walks around the shelter. So, it’s usually about a 10–15 minute walk that our volunteers do as a team,” said Dan Rossi, Humane Animal Rescue CEO.
