Greenwood Pets Owner is sentenced for animal cruelty
The owner of a Warren pet store who pleaded no-contest to animal cruelty charges is prohibited from possessing animals for two years, under terms of probation set by a judge on August 22, 2013. Dennis Jones, owner of Greenwood Pets & Plants, also was sentenced to six months in jail but Macomb County Circuit Visiting Judge Thomas Brookover held the incarceration in abeyance to determine whether Jones complies with all terms of probation for two years. The judge ordered Jones to avoid alcohol, undergo substance abuse counseling, perform 60 hours of community service, and pay court costs.
