NEW WINDSOR – A 48-year-old New Windsor woman was arrested on Thursday by Humane Law Enforcement investigators in cooperation with Blooming Grove Police on 30 counts of cruelty to animals and failure to provide proper sustenance.

On December 20, 2014, authorities executed a search warrant at a farm at 138 Tuthill Road in Blooming Grove.

Johanna Kloer, also known as Annie Kloer, was arraigned with the case adjourned for 30 days.

A total of 38 animals were removed including horses, miniature donkeys, rabbits, a pony and chickens. All of the animals were being kept in substandard, below freezing temperatures, without proper food, water or veterinary treatment, officials said.

The investigation is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Humane Law Enforcement Hotline at 855-448-2548. Calls will be kept confidential.
