Dallas Animal Services investigates after 4 dogs euthanized

DALLAS (AP) - Dallas Animal Services officials are reviewing whether four dogs put to death two days after being given up by an owner were euthanized in error.

Some community members on Monday said potential homes were found for the dogs picked up Dec. 30. The animals were listed as surrendered by the owner in hopes of finding them new homes.

The investigation began after agency records indicated the animals were euthanized on New Year's Day based on their health and behavior.

Deborah Whittington helped rescue the dogs and says she believed the animals would have 10 days at the shelter before possibly being euthanized. Whittington says the dogs died a senseless death.
