Nearly 300 Farm Animals Amongst Others Rescued From So-Called Animal Sanctuary in North Carolina

Hundreds of animals were rescued from horrific conditions at a home reportedly belonging to Deborah and Cori Hall in Craven County, North Carolina.

According to Craven County Sheriff Chip Hughes, it is believed that the Halls were selling animals through their non-profit “I Will Carry You Animal Sanctuary.” Both face at least one misdemeanor charge, including felony charges that may and should be filed against them.

Dogs, goats, pigs, roosters, and horses in “terrible shape” were amongst the animals saved by the authorities, along with the help of numerous local rescue groups.

Craven County authorities were required to step in bleach while on site to avoid spreading disease. They sadly reported that at least one animal was found dead at the property.

“I’m not turning a blind eye to this anymore. If you’re running an operation like this in Craven County, we’re shutting it down,” Hughes told News Channel 12 as noted in a post on the department’s Facebook page.

As per Hughes, the necessary steps will be taken to ensure that none of the animals are euthanized. They will not be taken to a kill shelter.

Please report any suspicious animal operations to your local police.
