Norfolk Animal Control is being investigated by the State Veterinarians Office for substandard conditions, and now there are new accusations against the Virginia animal shelter.
An insider claims that there are 109 dogs inside the shelter while the capacity is only 100, and they have 104 cats which means the shelter is over capacity by 39 cats.
The insider took pictures of dogs standing in their own waste and cats too sick to stand. She says that animals are not receiving needed medical treatment and are left for long periods of time with inadequate amount of water.
More about what the insider says about the animal shelter after the jump.
In one case, a cat got sick on May 30th. It was seen by a veterinarian and given medication on the June fourth, and was euthanized on the June ninth.
“Due to the understaffing and poor organization, poor management, I don’t believe that this cat was given the medication that the vet prescribed for him.”
Our insider says this incident is an example of what many other animals have been suffering through. Problems are at their worst when the shelter is over capacity like it is now. When that happens, dogs are often left unattended for hours.
