McDuffie County post re animal shelter

On Wednesday morning, McDuffie County updated the community on the investigation into its animal shelter.

Following a weekend during which animal activist Maria Salvaggio, founder of 2 Hands Saving 4 Paws animal rescue in Thomson, posted numerous video and audio recordings online alleging severe animal abuse at the McDuffie County animal shelter, officials announced Monday that they were opening an internal investigation.

The investigation is being conducted by County Manager David Crawley and the county Human Resources Director Ruthie Thomas.
