A Clarksville woman was arrested for animal cruelty with a bond of $1,000 after police discovered dogs left out in oppressive heat without food, water or adequate shelter.

Police went to a house on Central Avenue where they saw two very thin adult dogs and a thin puppy outside. Upon questioning, Joyce Stepp , 18, of 802 Central Avenue, said the dogs had been outdoors  over an hour.

Animal control responded the following day and told Stepp the dogs could not be kept in those conditions. The temperature was 97 degrees and the dogs were in danger of heat-related illness.

Stepp was cited on June 25, and booked at Montgomery County Jail.
