Patricia Blevins entered a not-guilty plea inside the Rowan County Judicial Center after police charged her with 46 counts of animal cruelty.
Blevins made her first appearance in court Monday, after county officials raided her Morehead mobile home, seizing 118 dogs and puppies.
Officials with the Rowan County Animal Shelter say some of the dogs were found with broken bones, others malnourished and some even living with their own feces inside their crates.
"Yeah, we're gonna see it through and make sure she is...there 's a conviction and that the dogs are able to go on to find a good home," says Jan Dacci, with Saving The Animals of Rowan County
Judge Don Blair selected a court-appointed attorney to represent Blevins.
Blevins remains out of jail on bond.
Blevins is scheduled to return back to court next month.
The group STAR say's it needs towels, blankets and dog beds to help take care of the rescued dogs and puppies.
