Department of Agriculture Completes Inspection of the Sangamon County Animal Control and Adoption Center
The Department of Agriculture completed a surprise inspection of the Sangamon County Animal Control and Adoption Center. The inspection found ZERO violations. Animal Control received the highest possible marks in all 12 categories, including animal health and care. At the request of the County Board, the Illinois State Police (ISP) have begun their investigation into the sensational criminal allegations of animal cruelty. ISP is identifying and interviewing those persons who claim to have pertinent information on the allegations. Those interviews will include staff and volunteers from animal control as ISP determines is necessary. ISP will consult with the Department of Agriculture as needed throughout the investigation. We will make a detailed report of the investigation available.
