Cambridge Woman Faces Animal Cruelty Charges

Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md.- A Cambridge woman is facing animal cruelty and related charges following accusations that she failed to give proper care to four dogs at her home.

Forty-four-year-old Saadia Bronte Wongus, of Oakley Street, was served a criminal summons from the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office on Monday. Deputies said Dorchester County Dog Control officers checked Wongus' home on Oct. 4 for a check on welfare of the animals contained there. Upon arrival, police said four dogs were discovered to be in need of medical attention.

The dogs were taken from Wongus' home to a treatment facility, where they continue to be treated for their ailments, police said.

Wongus is charged with four counts of animal cruelty, four counts of failure to provide food, water and shelter and one count of failure to retrain a dangerous dog. She is scheduled for a hearing on Dec. 2 in Dorchester County District Court.
