ASPCA Rescue More Than 300 Animals in Moulton
Following a successful two-day adoption event, which drew more than 900 people and found homes for more than 200 animals, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is transporting the remaining animals rescued in late June from Lawrence County Animal Shelter in Moulton, to various animal welfare agencies including the Greater Birmingham Humane Society and 10 other states across the country. On June 30, the ASPCA assisted the Moulton Police Department in removing more than 300 animals from the Lawrence County Animal Shelter and transported them to a temporary shelter where they received medical care and behavioral enrichment. ASPCA responders discovered the animals—dogs and cats of all breeds and ages—living in deplorable conditions and suffering from neglect and numerous medical issues. On July 16, Lawrence County Animal Shelter director Bobbie Taylor was arrested on 17 counts of animal cruelty.
