Animals Moved From New Bloomfield Shelter After Investigation Leads to City Employee Arrest and Firing

An investigation into animal neglect at a Holts Summit kennel has led to an arrest of a city employee and the removal of animals.

According to a news release from Holts Summit the city’s animal control officer said the city’s kennel facility had poor conditions for the impounded animals.

Following an investigation, the city employee responsible for caring for the animals was fired and arrested.

Several animals at the facility were found to be without water.
