STAMFORD, Conn(CBSNewYork) — Relatives, friends, and co-workers rallied in support of a pet shelter worker who has been accused of secretly putting dangerous dogs up for adoption.
Laurie Hollywood was fired in June, and arrested on charges of reckless endangerment, CBS 2 reported.
A city investigation showed that she had allegedly concealed records on dogs that were brought to the shelter after they had attacked people.
“She’s just a very passionate person. She’s very caring for the animals. She’s very thorough and professional. She’s always made sure that they went to a good home and it was a good fit with the family,” shelter volunteer Carrie Sonne said.
One of the dogs adopted under Hollywood’s supervision bit three police officers, another sent a person to the hospital.
