Sad to hear that a rescue organization let things get out of control. According to the Sanctuary's PetFinder account, they were strictly no-kill. The catch-22 of animal rescue is that if you do not euthanize, you cannot intake those which you do not have room for. I've volunteered at a no-kill shelter in Little Rock, and it is difficult to hear shelter workers turn away people trying to bring animals in. Many of them had the animals dumped on them or their property. Through no fault of their own, they are forced to either take the animals in or get them in a rescue. Oftentimes, the only place that can accept them are the city shelters, which euthanize. Hopefully this lady can be mentally eval'd and receive the treatment she needs.
