THE director of an animal sanctuary is being charged with killing 3,000 cats and dogs illegally.

Prosecutors believe that Carmen Marin, of the Parque Animal sanctuary, in Torremolinos wrongly euthanised the huge number of cats and dogs.

The manager of the shelter is also charged.

An investigation has found evidence that the pair ‘performed massive euthanising in the shelter’ between 2009 and 2010.

It claims that they ‘administered lethal medications to the animals in small doses, causing unnecessary and unjustified suffering until death’.

The director and manager are not qualified to administer euthanasia drug Dolethal, and are also accused of falsifying monthly reports to the town hall.
