NC Rescue Mission Discovers 80 Mistreated Animals

Another animal rescue in North Carolina demonstrates the state’s need for stricter animal-welfare laws.

The Humane Society of the United States and several other animal-welfare and veterinary associations joined the Sheriff’s Department of Pender County, North Carolina in an animal rescue mission, in which 80 animals including dogs, calves, chickens, a horse, and a goat were taken into custody. The rescue was ordered after someone filed a complaint about a sick puppy with the police. While the rescue was a success, this incident highlights North Carolina’s need to implement stricter animal-protection laws. “This rescue, along with the 13 other we've done in the past 3 years, demonstrates the need for stronger laws in North Carolina to prevent someone from forcing dogs to spend their lives in squalor, without access to clean food and water,” says Kim Alboum, North Carolina state director of the HSUS.
