Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

Court battle leaves dogs in limbo

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Hundreds of Lonoke County dogs are in limbo at the Pulaski County Humane Society. They'll be there until a Supreme Court judge makes a decision. But it's getting costly.

"It's approximately two years, it will be two years, the end of June," said Dr. Teresa Medlock.

Dozens of dogs, 137 to be exact, have been at the Pulaski County Humane Society for the last two years.

They were taken from Sandra Nance's Lonoke County property in 2012 after a search by the Humane Society and Lonoke County Sheriff's Department found the dogs living in poor conditions.

"They are evidence in the court system case and so we're entrusted with their care until the resolution of the case," Medlock said.
