Fairfield woman gets suspended sentence for running animal house of horrors
A Fairfield woman accused of running an animal house of horrors was given a five-year suspended sentence and three years probation Wednesday. Robin D'urso was running the rescue organization Companions for Life out of her Fairfield home when police raided it in July. Animal control officers say they seized 129 dogs living in filthy, cramped conditions. D'urso, however, claims only 59 dogs were seized and that they had plenty of space. Despite pleading guilty to six counts of animal cruelty, D?urso says she never abused her rescue dogs. D?Urso was also ordered to pay the town of Fairfield $15,000 in restitution.
