ATHENS (WTVB) - A 63 year old Athens woman who lost all her pets this week when officials declared they were living in deplorable conditions, says she wants them back. Jan Aker says she never mistreated them and they were always well fed. Calhoun County deputies say many of the 35 cats, and 8 dogs were in poor health and that they may pursue animal cruelty charges against the woman. They were armed with a search warrant when they seized the animals from the home on V Drive South near Athens on Tuesday. She has apparently been charged before with hoarding animals in Battle Creek.
