RICHFORD, Vt. -

A father and daughter from Franklin County face animal cruelty charges.

Acting on a tip earlier this month, Vermont State Police say they found two dogs in poor condition at a home on the East Richford Slide Road. The dogs were found without food, water or proper shelter and a veterinarian estimated they were within 24 hours of death.

Both dogs survived and are now in the care of the Franklin County Humane Society.

Friday morning police arrested the dog's owners, Randall Sheperd, 52, and Casey Sheperd, 19, on two counts of animal cruelty. They were cited into court in February.
