LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ala. – Moulton Police Officers and representatives with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals have started moving dogs from the Lawrence County Animal Shelter at Bobbie Taylor’s house to a new, safe location.

This investigation started after WHNT News 19’s report sharing a shelter volunteer’s allegations of abuse.

Now, yellow crime scene tape surrounds former director Bobbie Taylor’s property in Moulton.  Police have taped off the property and are calling it a crime scene.

The ASPCA is moving the animals to an undisclosed location for them to be checked out and medically treated if necessary.

If you feel as though one of your missing dogs could be in the shelter, you should call Moulton Police. They will take down your information and compare it to the animals being removed from the shelter. The phone number to Moulton Police is (256) 974-3961.
