NEW PORT RICHEY

Woman will fight fine in critter case

Last month, Maleka Sharay got a $12,013 citation on charges of harboring 17 cats and 16 dogs in her New Port Richey home. On Tuesday, she took the first step toward fighting the fine. She pleaded not guilty to 24 counts of violating county code — one count for each animal she had above the county limit of nine. Sharay will have a chance to defend herself at a hearing scheduled for 1:30 p.m. June 18 before Pasco County Judge Paul Firmani. For years, Sharay has run a makeshift animal shelter out of her home, taking in hundreds of strays and adopting them out. A county code enforcement officer said he has been warning Sharay since October that she's allowed to have only nine pets. Sharay, 45, was fined $500 for each animal above the county limit, plus $13 in court costs.
