As Hurricane Florence barreled toward the Carolina coast, Tammie Hedges took action to protect pets that might have otherwise been caught in the storm – a decision that led to her arrest.
Tammie is a resident of Waynes County, NC. She runs a charitable group called Crazy's Claws n Paws, which helps low-income families with vet bills, pet supplies and so on. Well, Tammie was taken into custody Friday after providing care to more than two dozen animals – 17 cats and 10 dogs – for owners who had to evacuate before the storm hit.
Because she did not have a permit to run a shelter.
Last word is that she's been released on an unsecured bond of $10k. She has multiple charges against her.
