Animal cruelty case results in overcrowding at local Animal Shelter
Montgomery County, TN – Montgomery County Animal Care and Control (MCACC) is facing overcrowded conditions as a result of in-processing 22 dogs related to an animal cruelty case that was reported on June 23rd. The dogs must be held at MCACC until further notice because they are part of an ongoing investigation.
In the meantime, most of the dogs that were already in the shelter need to be moved to another location as soon as possible.
The preferred location would be to a great home where they can bring joy to an individual or family.
MCACC staff has reached out to their rescue partners and other shelters, including Fort Campbell, seeking help but they are all full at this time.
“Temporary kennels have been set up in the hallway but this is not ideal for the animals or the staff in a building that is already beyond capacity. We need to find good homes for our adoptable dogs,” said David Kaske, Director of MCACC.
“If you have been seriously thinking about getting a dog, I ask that you please consider a shelter dog first. Shelter dogs have proved to be some of the best dogs you could ever have,” Kaske stated.
For those interested in fostering, dogs over the age of four months will not be available for foster care unless they are spayed or neutered.
