East Texas Woman Indicted On Animal Cruelty Charge

A Gladewater woman, charged with animal cruelty, has been indicted by a grand jury.  Teresa Dawson, 51 was arrested back in September in connection to a puppy mill.  Officials rescued 247 dogs from Dawson's Upshur County home.  The dogs were found in cramped and filthy conditions.  Many were sick and starving, and were turned over to the SPCA.  Dawson has also been ordered by a court to pay more than $24,000 to the SPCA for food and vet care.
