Craven-Pamlico Animal Shelter responding to criticism
JAMES CITY, Craven County —
The Craven-Pamlico Animal Shelter in New Bern is responding to harsh criticism over the number of employees who have left and no longer work there.
Since May, five people have resigned, including the director. Many people have voiced their concerns about how the animals are being taken care of during the transition. According to Craven County Health Director Scott Harrelson, the animals are as good as they have always been.
Harrelson said they’ve experienced a turnover rate of 100 percent. He said he understands the concern over the animals’ treatment and wants to ensure everyone the animals are in good hands.
“I want people to come and see for themselves," Harrelson said. "Don't just listen to me say it. Come on out and we'll walk you through every kennel, every cat cage and you can see for yourself.”
