The Cherokee County Marshal's Office on Friday obtained arrest warrants to charge Sharian Elizabeth Cahill, 43, with the misdemeanor accounts.
The marshal's office on Wednesday raided Ms. Cahill's home on Sugar Mill Lane in the upscale Sugar Mill Farms neighborhood off Gantt Road.
Dressed in hazardous materials suits, animal control officers from the marshal's office found 23 dead cats, a dead dog and 127 other animals - many suffering from illness - inside the house.
Chief Marshal Ray Waters said the interior of the house was in disarray and "littered with animal feces and a very strong odor of animal urine."
The house is overgrown with vegetation, and inside there are piles of garbage and filth covers the floors, countertops and walls.
The marshals were assisted in the operation by Cherokee County Fire and Emergency Services, the Department of Agriculture's Animal Protection Services and two local veterinarians.
One of the surviving cats was euthanized, but the other animals are being cared for at the Cherokee County Animal Shelter in Canton. The animals are suffering from illnesses including infections and skin problems.
Officers had been called out to the house by neighbors, who complained they thought a kennel was being operated illegally because of the bad animal odor.
The Cherokee County Humane Society inspected the home on June 24 as required by state law, officials said, but found no evidence of animal cruelty. The organization has been banned temporarily from adopting out or fostering animals from the shelter.
