Dogs Returned to Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary

Posted: Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- For months, Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary has been placing dogs caught their Kent County dog control contract with local kennels. But Todd Clyde with Delmarva Pet Resort says even though he's been taking care of Safe Haven's dogs, he isn't being paid. That's why he is returning the dogs to the shelter.

"They're nice, they're happy. Most of them would make great pets, they just need a chance," Clyde said.

On Friday, Clyde brought the first of more than 30 dogs back to Safe Haven.

"Our decision was made for us but I think this where they need to be so I'm happy," said Lois Fargo with Safe Haven.

Clyde said the more than $60,000 outstanding bill for Safe Haven forced him to return the dogs.

"I mean i've got my payroll, I have to pay. So if they're not paying me, how am I supposed to pay my guys working for me. I've done it for months and I can't do it anymore," he said.

Not that it's been easy to say goodbye. "Most of these dogs came to me and they were a rack of bones, they were not in very condition and you saw them when they went out, most of them are, if anything, a little on the heavy side," Clyde said.

Safe Haven says they will try to adopt as many dogs as they can and will send others to no-kill shelters in New England. For Clyde, he is trying to set everything straight with Safe Haven and Kent County Levy Court.

"I've got a lawyer, they've got a lawyer, Safe Haven's got a lawyer. We'll go to court and the courts will decide who is responsible for what," he said.

Safe Haven is open for adoptions from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturdays.

    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    The Cambria Hotel is being built in the vacant lot that sits just north of the Route 50 drawbridge, meaning it will be one of the first things drivers see headed into town.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
