Animal Care and Adoption Center Director Charles Lokey is tired of finding animals dumped at the shelter after hours. He told me he has found kittens and puppies left in boxes at the door of the shelter in the heat of the summer that are nearly dead and he is sick of it. So new signs are posted and video surveillance has been installed at the shelter.

Animal dumpers have been busy leaving pets after hours at the shelter. Often times there are dogs tied to the front door or thrown over the fence, which is six feet tall. Some animals have been left in boxes or just turned loose in the parking lot. New signs have now been posted to advise the dumpers of the laws they are violating and the fines they are facing. During certain times of the year, dumping an animal can also be considered animal neglect or abuse.
