WILLIAMSBURG COUNTY (WCSC) - More than 70 animals were rescued from the Williamsburg Animal Shelter on Thursday.

Officials say that a local vet will also inspect the shelter weekly.

Animal rescue and relief got involved after allegations of animal abuse and neglect at the shelter. Those allegations included improper disposal of animals, running out of euthanization drugs and selling donated dog food.

Animal rescue and relief wants the state to get involved and investigate the shelter.
