Animal Rescue Group Files Suit against Mobile County

Animal Rescue Group Files Suit against Mobile County

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama -

A local animal rescue group is taking the county to court, saying the animal shelter is killing too many pets.

SouthBARK filed the suit in federal court. It is the same group that was banned from the shelter last year, but they say conditions in the shelter are getting worse and they want something done about it.

They filed their suit on behalf of the animals in the shelter.   

"We would like to be back in the shelter rescuing animals we would like to not just SouthBARK, but the rescue groups have a say in their policies and procedures," said Dusty Feller of SouthBARK

"Being an owner in the of an animal that is in the shelter, just being a rescue group there is a real legal question in my mind as to whether or not they can even bring the case and we will be filing motions in the court to have that matter dismissed too," said County Attorney Jay Ross.

The two sides will have a hearing in front of a judge next month.
