Animal Hospice Charity Shut Down Amid Cruelty Charges

A few years ago¬†Angel’s Gate hospice, a center for disabled and chronically ill animals, was soaking up the public praise. From Martha Stewart to Oprah to Rachael Ray, the upstate New York facility was loved by all. And the donations started pouring in.

Fast forward to an undercover 2010 PETA investigation that found suffering animals in horrible conditions at the hospice and that public support disappeared. Now, on the heels of a lawsuit alleging that there has been financial mismanagement, it looks like Angel’s Gate is closing its doors.

Susan Marino who ran the hospice is finding homes for her remaining 180 cats and “a handful” of dogs so she can close up shop. She claims that the PETA video did not accurately portray the care of her animals but that since it came out, she has received death threats and hate mail. She also denies that there was any funny business with the donations that came in from supporters. With all of these allegations stacking up against the organization, one would be crazy not to at least think, where there is smoke there is fire.

We hope those disabled and sick dogs and cats go to good homes that can give them the love and care they need.
