Kennett Animal Shelter

KENNETT, MO --Animal lovers in Kennett say the city's shelter's gone to the dogs, literally. The shelter's been around for a long time, but animal control officers say it started falling apart about five years ago.
"This last summer got so bad you couldn't breathe out here you couldn't stand the smell," Roberts says. He points to an overflowing septic tank as the cause of that smell, but it doesn't end there. "The whole back roof is caving in, it's so deteriorated. We can't keep the dogs in there," he explains.
