The Warren Co pound in TN photographs pets upon intake, like many facilities. The problem in Warren Co is that the animals appear to have been starved and injured after the intake photos and before being pulled by rescue. No one at the pound would speak to the local news but animal advocates speculate that the dogs are given little food and get into fights with other dogs trying to get at that food in order to stay alive.
Animal advocates also filmed an open pit behind the pound which is filled with dead dogs, many of whom appear to have starved. Additional details and disturbing images can be found on the FB page of the local Humane Society.
This is the latest in a lengthy history of abuse claims made by animal advocates against the facility. Nothing ever seems to change at the Warren Co pound. If you want to let the county mayor know how you feel, please keep your comments respectful. We can condemn the allegations of cruelty and needless killings in the strongest of terms while maintaining a level of professionalism and civility.
