(Lancaster) -- A Lancaster County man has pleaded guilty to seven counts of animal cruelty.

The Pennsylvania SPCA says John Huyard of New Holland was charged with a lack of necessary veterinary care, neglect, and lack of sanitary shelter.

Three Maltese-type dogs were removed from Huyard's property after a raid on November 19th, 20-15.

Huyard faces nearly $10,000 in fines, and is banned from owning an animal for about 20 months.

The Pennsylvania SPCA has also taken control of the dogs and will be available for adoption if his appeal is denied.
