I am sure you all recall my post about Dean Solomon, the animal hoarding faux rescuer who photoshopped off the sides of her ass when she posted her pic on the Internet. Today I have an update for you. I am very pleased to announce that, thanks to literally years of work by people trying desperately to stop this woman from acquiring more horses, Dean has finally been formally charged with 4 counts of 2nd degree animal cruelty.
We had all the horses evaluated by a vet upon arrival and the vet stated in her reports that the horses suffered from "severe neglect and animal cruelty". We took pictures of the issues with each horse and documented everything. We also have been collecting statements from people who have had experiences with Dean. We prepared a binder of documentation , vet reports, pictures of all the horses and their specific problems, signed statements from people who had experiences with PEC/Dean and gave all of it to AC.
Friday of last week AC sent Probable Cause paperwork to the prosecuting attorney's office and this past Tuesday Dean was charged with 4 counts of 2nd degree animal cruelty with maybe more to come...Her arraignment date is April 29th. We have been rehabilitating the horses and many still have along way to go. Serenity is really struggling to care for all the horses and I am in need of some support. I would be grateful if you could share this story with the horse community. Here is our website address www.serenityequinerescue.com Thanks for any help you can give.
