South Carolina authorities said they have arrested the CEO of a local animal rescue non-profit after they found multiple dogs and cats dead inside her home.

Richland County deputies said Caroline Dawn Pennington, 47, was arrested after she turned herself in this month.

Once deputies arrived, they found 28 dogs and two cats decomposing and located in cages and crates.

They believe the animals have been deceased for a significant amount of time and died due to dehydration and starvation.

Lott called this one of the worst cases of animal cruelty he’s ever seen.

Pennington is the CEO and Director of a non-profit animal rescue named GROWL.

Investigators ask that anyone who has made documented donations to GROWL in the last 12 months contact the sheriff's office. »
