Campbell County animal shelter turns over German shepherd

Posted:

GREENEVILLE (WATE) - A rescue group has taken possession of a neglected German shepherd after a dispute led to fears the animal would be euthanized.

On Sunday, volunteers from the Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue say they were led to believe a German shepherd would be put down, despite their attempts to take the dog into their care.

Friends of the animal shelter say they weren't allowed to release the dog for 72 hours.

The Campbell County Animal Shelter and its director, Betty Crumley, have been the focus of attacks recently by many who claim animals at the shelter are mistreated.

Deborah Lewellan with Imminent Danger German Shepherd Rescue said she took possession of the dog, which she named Silas, on Monday.

The German shepherd rescue is now looking for a home for their newest rescue.

Anyone interested in adopting Silas, can fill out on an application on the rescue group's website.
