Christine Macan of Conklin is not allowed to own or care for animals during the three years of her probation.

Macan has been sentenced in connection with her arrest for animal cruelty in July, 2012.  She pleaded guilty to misdemeanor failure to provide proper food and water to 16 dogs on her property.

Three of the dogs at her home were found dead along with several other small animals that were kept in cages. 13 dogs initially survived, but one later died.  The dogs were extremely malnourished and had not gotten needed veterinary care.

Macan had claimed to run a dog rescue organization.

The remaining 12 dogs were nursed back to health by the B.C. Humane Society in Binghamton and adopted to new homes.
