Help at last for two-hundred neglected pets

PORT ST. LUCIE- State and local investigators are still working out what happened at the Sanctuary Animal Refuge in Port St. Lucie. Some animal rescuers from our area have seen deplorable conditions before, but they say this is as bad as it gets, describing the situation as, "one of the worst cases of animal cruelty and hoarding ever seen."

Some animals were found dead when authorities busted the Sanctuary Animal Refuge last week. Rescuers say even more were found with diseases such as mange, while others had eye infections and tumors.

Officers say only two workers were caring for all of the nearly two-hundred animals on this property in Western St. Lucie County off of Carlton Road. Even with more workers there were just too many animals on the property..." More
