Spencer Co. Animal Control Board releases statement

SPENCER CO., IN (WFIE) - A statement has been released on behalf of the Spencer County Animal Control Board.

Lindsey Law Office sent the following to 14 News:

"The Spencer County Animal Control Board was formed to oversee and set policy for the operation of the Spencer County Animal Shelter. The mission of the shelter is to provide a facility for humane care and treatment of stray and unwanted domesticated animals.

The Board acknowledges that actions have occurred that are fundamentally opposed to that mission. In response, the Board has carefully reviewed its policies and has adopted new policies and procedures to address these unacceptable actions.

The Spencer County Animal Control Board remains committed to providing humane care and treatment of animals in Spencer County."

The statement comes after authorities confirmed an investigation into accusations that employees were putting cats in a freezer as a form of euthanasia.

This is a story we continue to follow.
