A Gladewater Woman Gets 3 Years Probation For Crimes Against Animals

After months of mental evaluation, a woman accused of sheltering more than 240 dogs in filthy conditions has been sentenced.

Teresa Kay Dawson, 51, was arrested and charged with animal cruelty back in September after Upshur County officials rescued more than 240 abused and malnourished dogs from Dawson's property outside of Gladewater.  She also had to pay more than $24,000 to the SPCA of Texas for vet care and treatment of the rescued animals.

She was also ordered to complete 140 hours of community service, and she is now only allowed to own up two animals.
