Woman Sentenced In Stone Co. Dog Hoarding Case

Posted: Updated:
Wiggins, MS -

A woman accused of hoarding more than 100 dogs has been ordered to pay almost $7,500 and get psychological counseling, and is forbidden to own pets for at least a year.
    
Stone County Justice Court Judge Jeffrey O'Neal fined Shirley Gai nearly $2,500 and ordered $5,000 in restitution to help cover costs of immediate care for animals seized in March from her property on Terry Cuevas Road.
    
The Sun Herald reports the 51-year-old Gai also received a year of probation at her sentencing Wednesday.
    
Gai has been free on a $3,000 bond after turning herself in on charges of animal cruelty and animal neglect. She lives in Lumberton, but had 116 mixed-breed dogs at her property in Stone County.
