Ninety dogs taken from local woman

June 2, 2011

Ninety dogs have been removed from the home of an east-side Indianapolis woman within the past three months, even after she was ordered never to own or breed dogs in Marion County again. Wanda Shipley, 56, was issued multiple citations in March when animal control officers removed 59 dogs of various breeds and ages living in filthy conditions in her home in the 2400 block of Treasury Row. About a week ago, dogs were again spotted in her yard. This time, officers removed nine dogs from her home and 22 more from the garage of a home next door, which belongs to a friend. An animal control official said he’s never seen more dogs removed from one person in Indianapolis.
