Thursday at 11: High Kill Shelter Investigation

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - "I get so frustrated because we can't even save the animals!"

That was the plea we received from animal rescuer Kristen Marris.  She contacted us complaining about a local animal shelter, funded completely through its county taxpayers.

"At first it was a great relationship," Marris said.  "They'd help us out if there was a dog we wanted… …now lots of rescues who go there to get dogs to hopefully adopt out, are unable to get any animals."

Marris wasn't the only complainer.  WBTV Anchor Molly Grantham received multiple emails and calls about this one shelter.

Thursday at 11:00pm, she digs into what's being done to save the unwanted cats and dogs who end up there.

See her special report, Thursday, November 15th, at 11:00pm.
