Meanwhile, an Orleans County man faces animal cruelty charges for allegedly leaving the dogs in the car at Eastview Mall.
Sheriff's deputies said Nathan Stephens, 47, of Holley, was arrested after several shoppers called 911 to report dogs in distress.
Stephens was charged with three counts of animal cruelty, three counts of confinement of a companion animal in a vehicle, and aggravated unlicensed operation. He was being held on bail.
In June of 2013, Stephens was charged with animal abuse when he was arrested for having improper shelter.
