ACSO: Adair woman charged with animal cruelty
By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office
On Tuesday, March 23, 2021, Adair County Sheriff Josh Brockman was contacted about a possible puppy mill where the animals were in need of intervention due to health and living conditions.
An investigation was launched and on Wednesday, March 24, 2021. Sheriff Brockman filed an affidavit for a search warrant with County Attorney Jennifer Hutchison Corbin. The search warrant was granted by District Judge Mike Loy. At approximately 2:30pmCT, the Sheriff's Office executed the search warrant at a residence off of Johnny Harvey Road in the Breeding community.
Once the scene was made safe, Guardians of Rescue, a national nonprofit organization came in with teams from Kentucky, West Virginia, and Tennessee to assist with animals and assessment.
The Sheriff's Office found probable cause to seize 141 dogs and 9 cats. At a little after 4amCT the following morning, after nearly 14 hours on scene, all animals had been triaged and were on their way to rescues.
The animals were surrendered to Guardians of Rescue, who will oversee their care. Once they're healthy and have received any needed medical care, they will be adopted out to new homes of loving families and individuals.
Debra Remmer, 65, of Adair County, was charged by Sheriff Brockman with 141 counts of Cruelty to Animals 2nd degree.
The investigation is ongoing by the Adair County Sheriff's Office. The Sheriff's Office wants to thank all the volunteers that helped from the rescues and from the community.
