Animals abandoned at rescuer's kennel
The president of Happy Tails Rescue called police Tuesday evening after discovering that someone had left a dog and puppies in a kennel at her Appling home.
Barbara Gleitsmann said that when she returned home about 9:15 p.m., she checked the rescue and boarding kennels on her property. She found a female and eight puppies in a kennel cage left inside her main boarding facility.
She examined them because they had been left in the same facility she houses clients' pets. The animals appeared to be malnourished but did not appear injured.
Gleitsmann said she wants to prosecute the trespasser. She kept the animals for Happy Tails.
