RALEIGH, N.C. –Despite trying to improve conditions,  WRAL reports that Montgomery County’s animal shelter’s latest inspection report shows animals are still living in unacceptable and deplorable conditions.

WRAL reported on the shelter in November and found that it euthanized nearly 1,200 animals, 100 percent of cats and 98 percent of dogs brought to the shelter in 2011. It has the highest kill-rate in the state.

According to inspectors, the shelter does not have any walls to protect the animals from the weather. The report also notes that the dogs and cats weren’t fed and their cages not cleaned for an entire weekend.

The shelter failed 11 of 14 inspections last year, and failed two so far this year.
