On June 22, 2017, the Stony Point Police Department was asked to assist the Hudson Valley Humane Society (HVHS) with a search warrant that they had to search the home of Jerome Adler in the Town of Stony Point.

No, the HVHS, were not just coming by to say hello and collect donations for their most recent fund drive. They were there because numerous neighbors had complained that Adler had many dogs in his home they neighbors believed were living in horrible conditions.

What the HVHS and the Stony Point Police department found that day when they gained access to the home was not something for the faint of heart. Inside the home was 21 adult Husky dogs, who were according to a press release, 'in various stages of health.' The conditions that the dogs were living in inside the home include feces and urine covered floors, along with 'conditions that were not safe or suitable for dogs.'

When the exterior of the home was searched, the team onsite found, what is believed to be another 5 animal carcasses, in plastic bags and containers.

The dogs have been taken to the Hudson Valley Humane Society where they are being evaluated by a veterinarian. The owners of the property are being investigated for numerous violations. Charges are expected.
