#TheList Jason Michael Addinall, born 1970, and Yvonne Addinall, born c. 1972, of 2, Hewley Avenue, Tang Hall, York YO10 3TG – left their dog to suffer with a severe skin condition, conjunctivitis and badly overgrown nails
Jason and Yvonne Addinall pleaded guilty to three charges of animal neglect committed between January 1 and August, 2018 for the severe neglect of their Lhasa apso, named Hendrix.
Hendrix is recovering well since being taken into the care of the RSPCA.
The couple’s lawyer said his clients had been under pressure when they neglected their dog.
Yvonne Addinall had been hospitalised with meningitis and pneumonia from January to March 2018 and her husband’s thoughts had concentrated on her and not the dog, both while she was in hospital and while she was recuperating at home.
Jason Addinall was fined £450 with a £45 statutory surcharge and Yvonne Addinall was fined £200 with a £30 statutory surcharge. Each was also ordered to pay £150 prosecution costs to the RSPCA. Both were banned from keeping dogs for three years.
