Marshfield: A case of animal hoarding may result in criminal charges

Under advisement of town council, the Marshfield Board of Health immediately entered executive session Monday night and met with the two female owners of 801 Ferry Street as well as the Marshfield police.

More than 25 dogs, as well as five cats, were found in the house mid July and turned over to animal rescue by town officials. Chair Jerry Maher stated that if the town were to file criminal charges against the two female owners, the board had the authority to enter executive session in order to protect the privacy of the defendants.

Though he would not discuss the outcome of the meeting, everyone was happy with the result,“The exact decisions that came out of the meeting are still in executive session; I can’t tell you. I think it was an agreement and I think the results were good. I think the police department is happy with results, I think the board of health is happy with the results, and the animal control officer is happy with the results.”

Chair Maher stated that the animals have been rescued and adopted,“The places that the animals are going are inspected. So in other words, the house is inspected so we know that all of these animals have been neutered, they’re up-to-date on their shots, they’re 100% clean, and they have been put in good houses.”

It is unknown if criminal charges have been established
