FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - The animal services supervisor for Farmington has been fired. The move comes after months of questions surrounding her qualifications, background and conditions at the shelter.
City officials say Angie Arnold was dismissed Feb. 1.
They say Marcy Eckhardt of Pro-Shelter will continue to provide consulting services to the city.
The board of directors of the Humane Society of the Four Corners sent an eight-page letter to Farmington Mayor Tommy Roberts and the city council on Nov. 12.
The Farmington Daily Times says the letter detailed alleged unsanitary, unsafe and disease-ridden conditions at the shelter.
The letter also alleged that Arnold was never a veterinarian as she claimed. Arnold denied the allegations.
