(NEWS CENTER) -- Buxton Police Chief Michael Grovo says the York County District Attorney contacted him this morning to set up a meeting to discuss the resolution of the Frasca animal cruelty case.
The chief and animal welfare officials were angry that they weren't informed a deal had been reached that would allow all charges to be dropped if the Frascas stay out of trouble for 17 months. Despite their anger everyone involved in the case is taking solace in the fact that they made a difference in the lives of about 500 dogs.
250 dogs were seized from the J'aime Kennel run by John and Heidi Frasca in Buxton back in 2007. Those dogs gave birth to another 250 puppies. All of the dogs were eventually adopted out.
"It was a good feeling to see that people really did care and we were going to get them exactly where they needed to go", said Jocelyn Layman, an Animal Care Technician at the Animal welfare Society, who also adopted a Buxton dog.
In all state animal welfare officials say the ongoing medical care of the dogs cost about $460,000.
