Skagit County woman charged with animal cruelty

The dogs were seized from an estate near Sedro-Wooley in what the Humane Society of the Skagit Valley called “a horrible hoarding situation to turn into a puppy”.

BURLINGTON, Wash – A Skagit County woman has been charged after more than 100 dogs were taken from her property in September, where they are believed to live in squalid conditions.

The dogs were seized from an estate near Sedro-Wooley in what the Humane Society of the Skagit Valley (HSSV) called “a horrible hoarding situation to turn into puppies”.

The Skagit County Prosecutor’s Office formally charged Alla Plisko with first-degree animal cruelty this week. Plisko pleaded not guilty.

According to court documents, Skagit County deputies served a domestic violence protective order on Plisko, 54, preventing her from being on the property on September 2, when they noticed “the smell.” terrible” emanating from her RV.

When the delegates searched the property, the delegates found 30 Shih Tzu dogs inside the RV, with no water or power source. Delegates also found some German Shepards in their outer kennels with ruffled fur.

Delegates found more dogs inside an outbuilding located on the property, which has no windows, air conditioning or ventilation.

Court documents say Plisko was escorted away but was later arrested when he tried to sneak back into the compound.

Plisko is facing first-degree animal cruelty and violating a protective order.

HSSV last week said the dogs were ready for adoption after it was forced to close to care for them.

The dogs were provided with minimal food and water, with some weighing as little as 3 pounds, according to HSSV. Human society says the dogs arrive covered in urine and feces and some of their claws are so long they have difficulty walking.

A total of 126 dogs have been rescued, but some are pregnant, increasing the number of them in care, HSSV said.

Skagit Humane CEO Janine Ceja told KING 5 after the animals were rescued.
