Troy Couple Charged With Animal Hoarding in Court Thursday

There is a court appearance set for Thursday for a Troy couple accused of hoarding more than 100 dogs, cats and birds in their Campbell Avenue house.

David and Michelle Hempstead are facing 17 misdemeanor charges under the state's Agriculture and Markets Law.

Police raided the house in December, and discovered the animals in horrific conditions.

Most have now been adopted out.
