Former animal breeder Valery Green is out of the dog and cat business- -again.
She'll be spending 30 days behind bars for contempt of court after violating an order not to own animals.
She was convicted of animal abuse and neglect in March.

Keith, even though Green was found guilty...many don't believe the sentence is harsh enough. As Judge B.A. Davis put it, Valery Green is addicted to animals...and even her friends say once she's out of jail...her obsession will take over.
