(KMOV)-- A woman has been charged after more than two dozen cats and dogs were found locked in a car.
Lori Pellin, 39, was charged with two counts of misdemeanor animal abuse.
The animals were locked in a car that was parked at the Ameristar Casino for about an hour.
Police say Pellin told police she was living in her car with the animals after being evicted a few days ago.
She is now in jail and the animals will go up for adoption later this week.
The 25 cats and two dogs are doing OK. If you are interested in adopting any of these animals call 636-949-3395.
