Guilty verdicts in neglect of horses

Jun 7, 2006

A public update has been posted to this case: Case: ----------------------------------------------------- Dominick Donovan and Jennifer Barisano appear to be back in business in Long Island, New York, operating a training center by the name of K9 Control. Their website,, makes no mention of their animal cruelty convictions. ----------------------------------------------------- The owners of a Back Mountain kennel where 35 dogs died last January were sentenced to 60 days in jail and ordered to pay more than $1,500 in fines on animal cruelty and abuse of animal charges. Dominick Donovan and his wife, Jennifer Barisano, owners of Pet Care Associates in the Kunkle section of Dallas Township, were convicted on April 10 of failing to keep their kennel in sanitary condition, failing to clean and sanitize daily, failing to maintain adequate drainage in dog quarters, and failing to obtain the necessary kennel licenses. Magisterial District Judge James Tupper, Trucksville, also found the couple guilty of not providing veterinary care for 24 dogs in the kennel as ordered by the state Department of Agriculture. According to citations issued by Pennsylvania dog warden Ellen Howarth, 12 dogs died after they did not receive care after an initial inspection. In all, 35 dogs died from contracting Parvo virus at the kennel. The specialty police dogs that died belonged to Donovan and Barisano, who also operated a dog breeding and training business. In February, Donovan said he closed down the kennel when the Parvo outbreak started and no animals belonging to his customers were affected. Pet Care Associates, a boarding, grooming and veterinary service facility located off Old Tunkhannock Road, was purchased by the couple last year.
