North Carolina revokes license for animal shelters in 2 counties

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina officials have pulled the license of a company that operates animal shelters in Davidson and Guilford counties.

Multiple media outlets reported that the state agriculture department on Monday revoked the license for United Animal Coalition to operate shelters in the two counties.

A report from the state agency detailed 65 cases of animal cruelty at the Guilford shelter. It also cited what it called an excessive number of animals found dead in kennels at the Davidson shelter.

The agriculture department said United Animal Care had serious deficiencies. The agency had been investigating the operations for more than a month.

United Animal Coalition President Carolyn Cudd did not respond to requests for comment.

The board of commissioners in both counties voted Monday to cancel contracts with United Animal Coalition.
