MCSO seizes puppies suffering from neglect in Surprise

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Maricopa County authorities have arrested a Surprise man after finding eight puppies that were starved of food and water.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio said detectives on Friday took 32-year-old Skyler Kelton in custody and are charging him with 16 counts of animal cruelty.

Arpaio said they found the puppies were severely underweight and dehydrated.

Arpaio said neighbors deserve credit for calling a hotline two months ago and reporting possible neglect to authorities.

Detectives said they worked with Kelton to improve the care of the animals, but nothing has been corrected.

The puppies have been medically cleared and will be cared for by county jail inmates.
