Angels of Assisi says one of its own employees misled them about five puppies brought in earlier this week, and the animal rescue organization has posted an on-line apology.
The employee said he found the puppies apparently abandoned along Interstate 81. Believing him, Angels of Assisi posted that account with the dogs’ photo and a foster home request on its Facebook page. The organization says the employee was actually asked by an acquaintance to bring the puppies in and admits making up the Interstate story, never expecting the publicity that followed.
Angels of Assisi says it has taken appropriate measures with the employee. As for the puppies, they’re said to be doing fine and about ready for adoption.
