DEXTER, Mich. - The owner of Jenny's Farm Market in Dexter pleaded no contest to two counts of animal cruelty in court Friday.
Charges were filed against owner, Burton Hoey after the Huron Valley Humane Society (HVHS) seized several animals from the market in 2012.
The HVHS says the animals were neglected and in poor health. Two horses, four donkeys and two goats were removed from the market.
"We've been to Jenny's Farm Market numerous times over the past 10 years because of complaints of abused and neglected animals," said Matt Schaecher, Director of Animal Cruelty Investigation and Rescue. "We see this conviction as a victory for the many animals that have suffered. We know there are many community members and families that will feel the same."
HSHV has been caring for the farm animals, which will now be up for adoption.
