Citizens of Boyle County are outraged after a recent event in Danville. According to a member of the community, two dogs were dropped off at the Danville establishment on Tuesday, May 10th. The owners, curious of their dog´s status, called the Humane Society the next day, only to find out their dogs were put down. ´´They were KILLED..less than 12 hours later. (the) Dogs were not even evaluated or given a chance to find a forever home. It’s outrageous and something needs to be done about this.” Said Autumn Morgan, a close friend with the dog-owner. A peaceful protest is being held tomorrow, May 20th at 11 am outside of the humane society. No comment has been submitted by the humane society, but it is clear this community seeks justice and answers.
