CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police say a Middle Tennessee woman is facing more animal cruelty charges after eight emaciated dogs were found at her mother's home.

Nicole Hulbig and her estranged husband, Eric Hulbig, were arrested last week on four counts of aggravated animal cruelty after Montgomery County Animal Control officers discovered four decomposing puppies at their Clarksville home.

The Leaf-Chronicle reports that investigation led authorities to check out the Sumner County property of Nicole Hulbig's mother, where they seized 39 dogs living in a barn. Authorities said the conditions of eight dogs led to the additional charges.

Nicole Hulbig is the founder of a nonprofit organization in Clarksville that claims to rescue dogs and train them for disabled soldiers. She has denied wrongdoing.
