0

A Galloway woman has been charged by police in three towns after Galloway police found several dogs tied to a tree in the woods.

Galloway Police said they received a call on September 16 regarding five adult German Shepherds / Belgian Malinois dogs tied to a tree and left in a kennel without water or food.

The dogs belonged to Jodi Wozniak, police said.

The dogs, which the owner estimated to have been left for 15 hours, were taken to the Atlantic County Animal Shelter.

Wozniak refused to hand over the dogs, according to interim Atlantic County District Attorney Cary Shill.

Another group of dogs

Linwood Police told investigators in Galloway that Wozniak brought five puppies to Linwood Animal Hospital in Linwood on September 21. The dogs appeared to have the Parvo virus, a highly contagious disease that can be fatal in dogs, according to the American Kennel Club.

Three of the puppies were euthanized and one was returned to Wozniak, who used a stolen credit card to pay his bill. One puppy was still being treated at Linwood.

Additional issues for Wozniak

Galloway Police also charged Wozniak with trespassing on September 21 after she returned to the property she was ordered to stay on September 13. She was arrested in violation of a deportation order.

Investigators also learned that she brought a puppy to Absecon Animal Hospital on August 28 and abandoned the dog after receiving an estimate for treatment for an obstruction in her digestive tract.

Billed by 3 departments in one day

After being charged by Galloway Police with trespassing and five counts of fourth degree animal cruelty, Wozniak was arrested by Linwood Police on charges of theft of services, fraudulent use of a credit card and two counts of animal cruelty.

Linwood Police then took Wozniak to Absecon, where she was charged with third degree theft of services.
