HOLYOKE, MA (WGGB/WSHM) –

A Holyoke man facing several charges of animal cruelty appeared in court Monday.

Julio Rivera, 49, was arrested last week and charged with 17 counts of cruelty to animals following an investigation at a Newton Street home.

On Thursday, Holyoke Police were assisting Holyoke Gas and Electric with shutting off the power to the address when a worker discovered the dogs living in squalor.

Animal control officers found 15 dogs described as malnourished and neglected inside the home. One, unfortunately, passed away.

In court Monday, Rivera pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on $5,000 personal surety. He is required to report to probation once a week and check in with his attorney.

Another court hearing is scheduled for January 25.

Western Mass News will continue to follow this story and will have more information as it becomes available.
