MEDFORD, Wis. (WEAU) -- A 29-year-old Medford woman who moved out of her home said she had to leave behind a dog and two cats because she could not bring the animals to her new house.

Callie Neuman is facing criminal charges. According to a criminal complaint, a neighbor called police after he continually heard a dog barking at a home on Maple Street but did not believe anyone still lived there.

Officer said the home was deemed unsuitable for living. Feces, urine and garbage covered the floors where the animals were.

The animals were taken to a humane society and a veterinarian said the dog, a Great Dane, was a little underweight, but overall healthy. Both cats were also in healthy condition.

Neuman is expected to be charged with three counts failing to provide proper food for confined animals. Her court date has been set for Feb. 18.

If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence of more than two years in prison.
