Man charged with cruelty to animals
A Jacksonville man was arrested by Pulaski County deputies Wednesday afternoon on an accusation that he was starving several dogs in his care, according to an arrest report.
After receiving word of the situation from a veterinarian at the Humane Society, a deputy went to 5909 W. Republican Road in Jacksonville, where two dogs were determined to be starving and two others malnourished and dehydrated, the report said.
Investigators arrested Brandon Rogers, 21, and took him to the Pulaski County jail. He was no longer on the jail’s roster Thursday night.
Rodgers is charged with two felony counts of aggravated cruelty to a dog and two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals.
