Stamford Fires Animal Shelter Manager For Allegedly Adopting Out Violent Dogs « CBS New York

A manager at an animal shelter in Stamford has been fired for allegedly allowing vicious dogs to be adopted.

Stamford Mayor David Martin announced the firing of animal control manager Laurie Hollywood on Wednesday.

He told The Advocate of Stamford that Hollywood is accused of withholding information about dogs’ histories, falsifying records to cover up the adoptions of violent dogs and practicing as a vet without a license.

The mayor said that in at least two cases, dogs at the animal shelter that were adopted but returned because they bit someone were adopted out again. Officials said one dog was adopted despite having bitten three police officers, and it bit the new owner’s wife. Another dog tried to bite a child’s face.
