Animal officers rescue nearly 70 dogs from Fairfield home
The smell of dog feces and urine is still in the air on Eastfield Drive as a result of years of animal cruelty. Police and animal rescue officers from seven agencies across the county pulled nearly 70 dogs from the Fairfield house. The dogs belong to Robin D'urso, who would rescue the animals from shelters in the south, only to cage them in hopes of a sale. Neighbors, who say D'urso made $50 to $70 on each dog, say they saw her mistreating the animals. Police say they have responded to 46 complaints about the house in the last five years. Neighbors say that before D'urso's dog business, she ran a daycare center out of the home, but it was shut down by the state. Residents say they're glad their ordeal is over.
