Animal Rescue Shelter Will Not Shut Down


The Tri-County Animal Rescue in Mauk, GA has been under fire for over a week now for allegations it was going to shut down and euthanize more than 100 dogs.

The only issue, the owners say none of it is true.

Last week Monday, the dog rescue organization sent out an email asking for help in relocating some of its larger dog breeds so repairs could be made to the building. The email reads that they don’t know what will happen to the dogs if they cannot find another place to put them.

But owner Andrea Hoffman says killing them was never an option.

Hoffman said, “On Thursday as I was shopping, I find out that I’m killing 100 dogs. I never had the intention to do so. I asked for help. Not slandering me and making me look like I’m a mass murderer.”

Hoffman said she has received emails and facebook messages from people as far away as Germany, asking her why she would do something like put down so many dogs.

The shelter is a temporary home to more than 100 dogs from all across Taylor County and beyond. All of the dogs are spayed or neutered, as well as fully vaccinated.
