STONE COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Stone County woman who had more than 100 dogs seized Tuesday has a history of hoarding in different counties.

Shirley Guy moved the dogs to this home on Terry Cuevas Rd. in 2012 from Lumberton after receiving pressure from law enforcement and the community. The dogs were living in the same deplorable conditions in Lumberton as what was discovered yesterday at the Stone County home.

Prior to Lumberton, Guy had lived in Waveland where she also had a run-in with law enforcement over hoarding. This prompted her move to Lumberton in 2006.

Rescue workers worked more than ten hours Tuesday pulling 117 dogs out of the home alive. They found dozens more dead including many stuffed inside trash bags and left on the porch.

According to Stone County investigators, Guy did not live on the property and they have not yet been able to locate her. They say she would visit the property once a month and drop off more dogs and a 50-pound bag of dog food. They added conditions were so bad inside the house for the dogs that the dogs were eating other dogs.

Guy is facing misdemeanor cruelty charges. If convicted she faces jail time and a large fine.
