Cowper, 24, and Caudy, 28, both admitted neglecting the animals, deputies said. They each face charges of animal cruelty and confining an animal without sufficient food and water.
Caudy faces an additional charge after deputies say they found a Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office badge in his dresser drawer. He allegedly admitted that he had stolen it from the home of a deputy.
He remained in jail Wednesday morning with a bond set at $23,750. Cowper, however posted her $26,000 bond and was released Tuesday night around 10 p.m.
Both Cowper and Caudy have made their first appearances in court.
