A Vanderburgh County woman will be allowed to keep just 5 dogs as part of a settlement in a hoarding case.

Numerous animal rescue groups obtained a temporary injunction to stop the judge’s order.

Crosley had previously surrendered 53 dogs and 23 cats from her so-called “animal sanctuary” to Evansville Animal Control and It Takes a Village Canine Rescue.
