WOLFEBORO — An attorney for the Wolfeboro woman facing animal cruelty charges has spoken out about the conditions of the 75 Great Danes rescued in New Hampshire.

According to court documents, Christina Fay's attorney filed a request for a hearing to determine if the 75 Great Danes would be transferred to different caretakers recommended by Fay. Her attorney said that the state could verify that the caretakers were "good homes" before transferring the dogs.

In the documents, Fay's attorney said that surgeries performed by the State may have been unnecessary, and maintains that the dogs are still Fay's property.

A hearing has been scheduled for August 30, 2017, at 1 p.m. in Carroll County Superior Court.

Fay was arrested back in June after officials were informed that the animals in her care were living in unsanitary conditions.

The dogs were taken out of Fay's 1.5 million dollar mansion and placed in the Humane Society's care until the case is resolved.

Fay's attorney told the Concord Monitor that the dogs were "seized not rescued."

Prosecutors in the pending case say "the dogs are being held as evidence."

Fay currently faces two misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals, but police believe more charges are pending.
