Torremolinos animal shelter to remain closed

A MALAGA court has rejected the objections of the managers of the Parque Animal shelter in Torremolinos and decided to uphold the closure order imposed by the town hall. Parque Animal came under investigation after a vet who had worked with the shelter reported to the Guardia Civil that they allegedly caused the painful deaths of thousands of animals in their care.

The President was arrested and charged with several crimes, including animal abuse, document forgery, fraud, practicing a profession without qualifications and illegal appropriation.

Another two employees at the shelter were arrested and a fourth person is charged in the case.
