WENONAH - A Wenonah woman is facing six counts of animal abuse after police officers removed an emaciated American Bulldog from her home.

Police discovered Hercules locked in a crate in the basement of Roxanne Notaro's home, according to the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Animal control officers say the dog was dehydrated, flea infested, and living in his own feces and urine.

The NJSPCA also said it found an elderly cat that was malnourished and in very poor condition. The cat had to be euthanized a short time later.

Hercules was taken to Delaware Valley Veterinary Hospital where he received critical care. Hercules is now in a foster care situation where he is receiving small meals each day to build his strength and weight.
