Homes sought for a dozen dogs caught up in Austintown arson case

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio -

There are more victims from an alleged incident of domestic violence and arson this week in Austintown.

Animal Charity of Ohio says it is looking for families or individuals to adopt twelve dogs left homeless after a suspected arson at a home on North Navarre Avenue early Wednesday.

Police have charged 41-year-old John Petroff with setting a fire to his ex-girlfriend's pickup truck at the home.  The fire spread to the garage and part of the home.  Although the house wasn't heavily  damaged, it turns out that the home was in foreclosure and destined for a Sheriff's sale.

The dogs, which were kept in the back yard of the home, have been turned over to Animal Charity. A thirteenth dog died.  Animal Charity officials there say they are at capacity, and don't have facilities to care for that many animals. They are asking people to step forward and adopt the dogs.

Those interested may visit the Animal Charity office at 4140 Market Street in Boardman.

The  office is open seven days a week between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.
