A “no-kill” animal shelter in Texas is allegedly under criminal investigation after a “multitude of animals”), but a potter would be put to sleep.

Control of the Montgomery County animal shelter (mcas) in Conroe, about 40 miles north of Houston, is now in the hands of County District 3-Commissioner James Noack, according to the Community Impact Newspaper.

“Given the serious nature of credible information, two employees have been suspended, with pay, pending the outcome of an internal (criminal) investigation,” Noack’s office said the paper.

The sheriff’s office reportedly got involved after it was alleged that several animals dropped off at the shelter by an animal horder were killed, Chairman of the Lone Star Animal Welfare League, Laura McConnell, said.

“It would be shocking (if true) that the multitude of animals brought in from a hoarding case were not seen by the vet before euthanization, or if a plea was not performing rescues,” McConnell said the Impact in an e-mail.

In July, the shelter wrote on Facebook was “more THAN FULL” after 80 pets were dropped off at the shelter and was the waiving of the adoption fees for an indefinite period of time.” Mca said that time had “more than 900 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens in the shelter.”

“Mca is committed to saving lives and to ensure that each animal has the best chance of finding a loving home,” the post read. “But we can’t do it without the community to help.”

“No-kill” shelters are often thought is to never kill any animals being cared for. However, “A typical rule of thumb is to determine whether a shelter saves more than 90% of the animals,” said PAWS Chicago.

The reception and care of the driver does not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
