Tracey Knight, forty years-old, is facing animal cruelty charges after thirty-eight dogs living in unsanitary conditions were rescued from her home. Several of the dogs were found locked in cages and suffering from health issues such as tumours, bites to the face, and Lyme disease. Knight is also charged with causing damage or injury to an animal by failing to provide adequate, food, water, care or shelter. She is scheduled to appear in court in Killaloe, Ontario in May 2023. Of the thirty-eight dogs rescued, Riverview Rescues still has 19 dogs who are looking for homes.
