    Investigators are still not able to locate Bruce Pfeifer. He is facing similar charges. His wife reported him missing a few weeks ago.

    Here's a good article on what led up to the arrest and trial.

    During the trial, Nelson County Animal Control Officer Carla Thompson said Pfeifer had called the animal control office in early March to ask for help surrendering and transporting the dogs from the Afton residence. It seems that this all started when she asked to surrender the dogs.

    Thompson said Pfeifer had stated her husband had abandoned her and she could not continue to care for that many dogs alone. Thompson directed Pfeifer to the local SPCA chapter and said the county animal control was at capacity but they could help out in a few days.

    Hubby seems to have left before the trouble over the dogs started. And there doesn't seem to be a lot of concern over him other than he is in trouble too.
