South Salt Lake-AP) -- Earlier this week, officials at the South Salt Lake animal shelter came forward to discuss rumors of overcrowding and planned mass euthanasia at the shelter.
Animal lovers decided they weren't taking any chances. The shelter says it adopted out more pets yesterday than it would normally do in a month.
Twenty cats and seven dogs went to new homes. The shelter also got help from the group "No More Homeless Pets", which sent volunteers to help work at the shelter. Three of the shelter's four regular employees are on administrative leave pending an investigation into possible financial misdeeds.
