Love & Care shelter in trouble again

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, September 1994:

MONTGOMERY, Alabama––Responding to consumer complaints,
attorney Greg Locklier of the Alabama Office of the Attorney General is “cur-
rently investigating Love and Care for God’s Animalife Inc.,” a purported no-
kill shelter based in Andalusia, Alabama, “for possible deceptive trade practices
and other violations of Alabama law.” Love and Care has moved and changed
business names several times in recent years while incurring debts and legal
problems in both Georgia and Alabama, including frequent alleged violations of
humane care standards. Founder Ann Fields now lives in California, Locklier
said. After longtime shelter manager Linda Lewis quit at the start of the sum-
mer, the already marginal care standards degenerated, according to Locklier, as
management chores were left to a staff of apparent illegal aliens. Shortly before
Lewis quit, she said Love and Care was housing 688 dogs, half of them age 10
or older, and 400-plus cats, of whom about half the females were unneutered.
