Disturbing situation in Wayne County, NC as animal control removes pets rescued during Hurricane Florence — 17 Comments

  1. Animals are property, like it or not. Same as any other property like cars, boats, furniture and the like.

    Property.

    She obviously had nothing but good intentions but… she took other people’s property and now she has to give that property back.

    • They intended to give all animals back they logged where they came from. Also they did not go out and get them other people brought them to a safe dry area. If that is the case every news crew and the Cajon Army is in deep crap because they picked up a ton of animals!

    • Did you not read the articles????? Are you suggesting that she was going to keep the 27 forgotten, abandoned and finally rescued animals….oops, property. You are missing quite a few brain cells, aren’t you, poor man.

  2. I agree, it appears that Tammie Hedges is being targeted in the wrong place and time. If the object of contention is the management of rescue animals in what is looked upon as an animal shelter, then the fact that this is an emergency situation needs to take precedence. How long does it take to receive an animal shelter license? In times of flooding immediate rescues are the only way to save lives. The Wayne County Animal Control of North Carolina is acting foolishly and incomprehensibly.😠😱

    • No she wasn’t. She has two past arrest records. One for animal cruelty in 2015 and another for practicing vet medicine without a license. So she has a pattern. She was on probation for the arrest in 2016 and already knew better than to solicit a controlled substance. I have pictures of her previous arrest record and the animal cruelty case where she had half starved dogs in a nasty warehouse living in their feces and urine.

  3. I agree, it appears that Tammie Hedges is being targeted in the wrong place and time. If the object of dissention is the temporary housing of rescue animals in what constitutes as a shelter operating without a license, the fact that this is an emergency situation needs to take precedence. How long is the wait for an animal shelter license? Obviously in times of flooding lives are at stake and immediate rescue is the only option. The Wayne County Animal Control of North Carolina is acting foolishly and incomprehensibly.😠😱

  4. I would hope if that goes to court that the judge slaps the county’s hand for doing that. If she wasn’t charging for boarding or operating a shelter (it was s temporary emergency housing for an extreme situation) then it sounds like it was personal. 😓

  5. It seems bizarre to me that under these extreme conditions a person doing her best to save the lives of companion animals is being punished. Has the world gone upside down? Perhaps Tammie is in violation of ordinances governing animal shelters. I am looking into it.

  6. Such an awesome act of kindness and compassion to provide a safe, dry environment for these animals that would otherwise not have survived being left out in this horrific storm. Karma will get you, you heartless cold AC man!!!

  7. This is a disgrace in my opinion. This rescue was just trying to help keep these animals alive which would have surely otherwise drowned! “No good deed goes unpunished” as the saying goes!
