Ballymena, County Antrim: Sarah-Jane Gilmore

#TheList Sarah-Jane Gilmore, born c. 1992, formerly of Douglas Terrace, Ballymena – allowed her pet dog to become dehydrated, anaemic and lethargic

Mother-of-two Gilmore pleaded guilty at Ballymena Magistrates Court on Wednesday 28 February 2018 to causing unnecessary suffering to a dog that was in her care.

The charge related to a severely emaciated Boxer-type dog, named Broxi. When examined by a veterinary surgeon, Broxi was found to be dehydrated, anaemic and lethargic requiring hospitalisation and the administration of intravenous fluids.

The vet concluded the dog had been suffering.

Broxi is now living with a relative of Sarah-Jane Gilmore and appears to have recovered from his ordeal.

Sentencing: Gilmore was fined £100 and ordered to pay legal costs of £200, court costs of £34, an offender levy of £15 and veterinary costs of £150.

A council application to disqualify Gilmore from keeping animals were rejected by the court.
