DANUBE, NY - The town of Danube man accused of animal cruelty after multiple animals were seized from his property this past weekend was back in court Monday.

Paul Tarbox appeared in the town of Danube court to face those charges.

After being appointed an attorney by the court, he entered a plea of not guilty to all of the charges.

There are still some dogs on the property that were not seized due to safety concerns.

Tarbox has until the end of the week to surrender the remaining dogs.

Johanna Stock, director of Pause for All Paws - the rescue organization that assisted in the seizure of the animals – says neighbors are concerned about the remaining dogs.

"There have been people who have been chased by these dogs. It is a concern because we don't know if they have been vaccinated. Dogs can be territorial. It doesn't mean they're going to attack but there have been reports that these dogs have gone after and killed cats at minimum."

Tarbox remains free on his own recognizance.

He is due back in court on September 9.
