Faricellie, Maria

 Animal Abuse Registry

December 2014 – Maria Faricellie, 53, and Sheila Meli, 49, were each charged with five counts of animal cruelty, one month after a raid on a suburban Buffalo, New York, kennel. Authorities found dozens of animals at the Dodge Boarding Kennel living in deplorable conditions – and nearly as many dead ones stored in freezers at the Getzville facility. Faricellie owns the kennel and Meli ran the facility. The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said it removed 77 live animals and amphibians from the facility. The SPCA said it also discovered 72 dead animals in freezers, some of which were raccoons, rabbits, sugar gliders, guinea pigs and turtles.
