"Marín Aguilar purposefully gave the animals a low dose of Dolethal, which caused a “slow” and “painful and prolonged” death"
"Marín Aguilar didn’t just cause the animals suffering by giving them low doses of the drug; she also administered it incorrectly. Normally, veterinarians euthanize animals by injecting the dose directly into a vein. Marín Aguilar, however, injected the animals in their muscles."
"Routinely killing the animals allowed her to create more space to take in more animals, she charged €60 for each adult dog, €45 for a puppy, and €25 or €30 for a cat."

"...the court sentenced Carmen Marín Aguilar to 3 years & 9 months in jail and fined her €19800, or about $23,000. Her accomplice, Barco Gómez was sentenced to one year in jail & fined €3,600, or about $4,200."

Her true justice will be come through KAMMA!!!!

“In almost half of Spanish homes, we live with dogs and cats. These dogs and cats aren’t just things, they are our family, our friends,” said Citizens’ Councilor Ángeles Vergara Follana, speaking before the local government to support further investigation into the case.

Sick bastard, I hope she suffers in jail. Well done judge, this, I hope, will be a good precedent for others.
