It is so sad that because many people love animals, those with criminal or greedy minds can often manipulate the situation to gain money they otherwise wouldn't be able to earn, and the animals left in their care are damaged or killed. You have to have an incredible ethic to run one of those places without seeking personal benefit. Obviously these yahoos couldn't do so.

Noted...I cannot comment until I read the facts of this case, but I will say this.....Sometimes, but very rarely, people start out to do things right but end up overburdened, understaffed, and no monetary resources, etc. to take care of these unwanted animals. I'm not condoning this behavior...but if this is the case...if they need help, they should seek help for the sake of the animals....and also, there are many.irresponsible people out there who choose to dump off their animals at sanctuaries because they cannot be bothered with them anymore. So sad. Thanks for sharing Kelly.

I'm embarrassed for my adopted home state. The regulations here for setting up shelters are very lax and they are all over the rural areas. It's hard to police them when they're off the beaten track like that. I live twenty miles from the nearest town and there are FOUR of these things nearby. I've called and called because the horses are so thin and the dogs are running loose but animal control finally told me they have better things to do and to stop calling. I tried our sheriff and was told they can do nothing unless animal control tells them to get involved.

I don't think most people who end up in a situation like this lack caring. Their intentions are good but they get overwhelmed by the number of animals, get animals which should be humanely euthanized, or get animals whose care is unknown to them and they can't refuse. I would like to hope no one did this deliberately.

I've visited two of the shelters I mentioned above. They mean well but the owners and staff don't understand that some animals cannot be adopted or rehabilitated and the humane thing to do is give them their rest. These are dog which are essentially feral, even after being socialized and handled by staff or cats you cannot approach to comb hair, clip nails or anything else without tranquilizing them. They lunge at, bite, and scratch potential adopters.

I wish animal control and the sheriff worked together here and that there weren't so many well meaning shelters gone wrong. It hurts to see the animals like that and not be able to do a thing about it.

No, I cannot take them. Every companion here is a rescue and with two dogs and five cats, I know I have enough to keep me busy.

There is no excuse for animal anise....NONE..especially by the organizations established to protect them.

Not fed for weeks at a time IS cruelty....the end!

I so want to think well of the owners of the animal sanctuary, but for them not to ask for help or assistance for food for the sentient beings is inexcusable! Until serious, severe laws are implemented and enforced, abuse of sentient beings will continue. Hope that all the sentient beings can be saved and may they find loving forever homes.

It seems that sanctuaries should still have some system to answer to. That way there isn't a length of time like this for things to get so bad before it is caught.
