A Marietta man faces animal cruelty charges.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office requested a summons for Steven Mouser, 41, of 27360 State Route 7, Lot 9.
Deputy Sheriff Kelly McGilton, the county dog warden, says a neighbor reported that animals were living in poor conditions in Mouser's home.
Upon executing a search warrant, deputies discovered the home had no heat and two dogs were in cages without food or water.
Deputies say they had been there a while and they were emaciated.
They had to be given warm baths to raise their body temperatures.
There was also a cat inside the home, which was running loose and had food from a bag it ripped open.
The animals were taken to the Humane Society.
Mouser faces charges of cruelty to animals and abandoning animals.
