SHUSHAN, N.Y. -- All of the animals found abandoned at a Shushan rental home in January are either back home with their owners or have new homes, according to the Salem Town Supervisor.

A Washington County dog groomer and show dog handler faces multiple charges after abandoned and dead animals were found at the home he was renting. Neil E. Jordon, 44, of Glens Falls has been charged with 13 counts of Animal Cruelty and three counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Jordon relinquished his own dogs that were in the house, and they have found new homes. The birds and rabbits that were also found in the home have also been relocated.

The landlord of the rental property called officers after discovering the abandoned animals during a chimney inspection attempt. Authorities found 11 dogs alive in the feces covered home, but without proper food, water, and improper living conditions. Several dead birds and two dead rabbits were also found.

Jordan was charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child after the investigation uncovered that he had his children at the residence with no working heat, and that dead animals had been stored in the freezer with the family's food.
