GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A Graves County woman wanted on charges of animal cruelty has turned herself in.

Graves County Sheriff Dewayne Redmon asked for the public's help to find Tammy Littlepage, 51.

After putting the call out on Monday afternoon, Littlepage turned herself in around 9:30 Tuesday morning.

Littlepage called the sheriff's office to tell them she was at home.

The case started after a deputy responded to a home on State Route 849E in Boaz, Kentucky over the weekend.

Upon arrival, the deputy found several dogs living in filth and in need of medical care.

The deputy attempted to make contact with the home owner but was unsuccessful.

A search warrant was obtained and deputies made entrance into the home which was covered in feces, urine and trash.

Four dogs in the home were all emaciated, malnourished and at least one had mange.

The animals were seized and taken to Graves County Animal Shelter and Mayfield Veterinary Clinic.

Littlepage faces four counts of animal cruelty in the second degree.

She's being held in the Graves County Jail pending a bond being set.
