Man Faces 195 Animal Cruelty Charges


The owner of an Adair County animal shelter is facing several counts of cruelty to animals.

50-year-old David Howery owns Clean Slate Rescue.

He is facing 195 counts of cruelty to animals.

240 dogs and 31 cats have been removed from his care and taken to a county-run shelter where the staff is working overtime to nurse the animals back to health.

Countless farm animals were also removed from Howery's care. They are being treated at a local farm.
