SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A couple who ran a Salt Lake City animal shelter have been charged with several misdemeanors.

Randal and Stephanie Evans ran the Hope Haven Animal Rescue, located near 2600 South and 1000 West.

They were charged yesterday with three counts of animal cruelty, air pollution, unsanitary conditions, disturbing the peace, too many animals, no permit and no business or animal licenses.

Police seized a total of 35 cats, 26 dogs, three birds and two rabbits last week. Two of the cats had to be euthanized.

Currently, all of the cats are being kept at South Salt Lake's animal shelter and the dogs at Sandy's shelter.
