LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Lauderdale County woman faces animal cruelty charges, as investigators said she kept her dogs locked up inside a mobile home. Investigators said the power wasn't connected at the home.

If you know anything about a mobile home, you know it doesn't take long for it to get pretty hot inside, especially in the heat of the summer.

The District Attorney's Office has charged Tammy Hare with five counts of animal cruelty.

Investigators said Hare left her five dogs locked up inside her mobile home without power for days.

Living conditions were so poor for the dogs, a pervasive odor could be smelled from the road adjacent to the home. Neighbors said the smell has gotten progressively worse, and they heard the dogs barking at all hours from inside.

Investigators said were three adult pitbulls and two puppies seized from the home.

Deputies arrested Hare Tuesday afternoon. At last check, she was being held on $5,000 bond.
