Twenty-eight. That’s the number of animals who were euthanized at a Georgia shelter after their owners were charged $100 or more with the promise to provide all shots and medical care and place their animals with adoptive families.
Lowanda Kilby, the former director of Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter, a supposed “no-kill” animal shelter in Georgia, was indicted by a grand jury on September 4 for allegedly charging owners not to euthanize their pets and then killing them anyway. The shelter has since been closed down.
