A man facing more than three dozen animal cruelty charges is due in court in Bertie County.
Stephen Kyprianades is due in Bertie County this morning. Authorities say they found 46 dogs and three cats at his home in Lewistown in May. The animals produced near lethal levels of ammonia in his house, lawmen say.
Many of the animals remain up for adoption. The Humane Society has waived the adoption fee to help find them good homes.
