Two people associated with the recently closed Frank Barchard Memorial Animal Shelter are now facing criminal charges.

Jo Ann McIntier, 61, of Wolfe City, and Joel Glenn McIntier, 21, of Wolfe City, have both been charged with two counts of cruelty to non-livestock animals.

The charges allege that in July of this year, the two “intentionally, knowingly or recklessly failed unreasonably to provide food, water, care or shelter for an animal.” In this case, the animals are dogs and cats in the care of the shelter.
