The owner and two employees of Animal Control Solutions have been charged under animal cruelty laws for throwing 80 pets off a bridge. The city of Barceloneta contracted with the company for animal control services. Mayor Sol Luis Fontanes of Barceloneta is named as a defendant in a civil suit.
Tragically this horrific treatment of animals in their care may have been going on for 8 years. It’s reported that during those years, the company didn’t deliver a single animal to rescue shelters as was contracted. It’s possible every animal collected by or surrendered to the company was cruelly killed. Find out more about the case and what you can do.
