Woman Arrested For Saving Animals From Hurricane Florence

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. 

Why? 

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.
