ROME, N.Y. – State police have arrested a Rome woman accused of leaving her dog in the garage without food or water.

Alycia M. Clark, 29, of Rome, was charged under the New York Agriculture and Markets Law with overdriving, torturing and injuring animals, failure to provide proper sustenance and failure to provide proper food and drink to an impounded animal -- all misdemeanors.

Police say they responded to a report of an abandoned dog at 6451 Andregg Dr. in the town of Lee on Monday, where they found a black and tan German shepherd in a garage with obvious signs of malnourishment.

The police took the dog to Rome Animal Hospital, where it was treated for chronic malnourishment.

Clark was issued an appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in Lee Town Court on Oct.16.
