MOULTON, Ala. (AP) - Animals are being removed from the Rescue Animal Shelter of Lawrence County after dead dogs were found there earlier this week.

ASPCA spokeswoman Anita Edson said in an emailed statement Friday that animals are being taken from the facility in Moulton to the ASPCA’s emergency shelter in Lawrence County.

Animal welfare agencies and Moulton police were investigating accusations of animal abuse at the shelter when they found numerous dead dogs there Tuesday.

Police Chief Lyndon McWhorter has said other dogs at the shelter were ill and were transported to veterinarians.

Investigators say they found animal bowls that contained green water and dog kennels with dried feces.

Bobbie Taylor, the shelter’s director, has denied claims of abuse. She says the animals usually come to the shelter in poor condition.
