(US/ga) Ex-worker: 'No-kill' animal shelter duped owners
TIGER, Ga. (AP) -- An animal shelter in northeast Georgia has been accused by a former employee of charging people money to help save the lives of dogs and cats, then having those animals killed anyway, according to a TV news report.
The Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter in Tiger offered what it called the "Lucky Dog and Kitten Program." WAGA-TV reports http://bit.ly/NTuADo that by paying a fee, animal lovers or people giving up pets could sponsor dogs or cats at the shelter, which promised it would not kill the animals and would use the money to cover veterinary treatments. The program cost $100 for Rabun County residents and $140 for others.
