SELMA, AL (WSFA) -
Selma Mayor George Evans believes there is one reason the city's animal shelter is overcrowded.
"Euthanasia is not taking place."
The reason euthanasia is not happening?
"The doctor was not getting paid for the services he was rendering."
Evans says the veterinarian didn't return for two months. Because animals weren't euthanized, the shelter quickly became overcrowded forcing workers there to turn away dogs and cats.
The mayor says the overcrowding is a result of miscommunication between him and shelter board members.
Evans says he approved the vet to work at the shelter, but board members claim they never received notice and therefore, didn't pay him.
"[It's] a situation that we just gotta work through and try to correct," says Evans.
In the meantime, Evans says the veterinarian will be back...hopefully within a few days.
But he admits, the situation at the shelter is the worst he's seen.
"I don't think it's ever gotten to this point."
The city currently owes the veterinarian roughly $1,300 dollars.
Mayor Evans says the veterinarian will only continue services with the shelter on a contractual basis.
The City of Selma allocates $100,000 dollars for the animal shelter each year.
The shelter also raises money through fundraisers and donations.
