WEST JORDAN, Utah (ABC 4 News) – ABC 4’s Noah Bond walked into Amor Animal Hospital in West Jordan with the camera rolling to get candid answers about claims a dog was neglected there.
A West Valley woman says her dog named Chocolate was neglected at Amor Animal Hospital during her week long vacation, but the Hospital’s manager says this claim is not true.
A candid tour of the facility revealed an extremely clean kennel area where dogs and cats were housed. The animals also had plenty of food and water.
Bond asked a front desk secretary if the dog named Chocolate was cared for properly. “Everybody who worked with Chocolate, they wrote statements down saying that he was taken care of just fine,” she said.
Bond asked about the sores found on Chocolate’s body. “The sores were already there when he got here,” the secretary said.
“Was he limping when he came in?” asked ABC 4’s Noah Bond. “He was limping for most of the time he was here,” the secretary responded.
Perkins filed a complaint with the West Jordan Police Department, but it won’t release documents because the investigation is active.
The Better Business Bureau gives Amor Animal Hospital an A plus rating. It has no previous complaints with the BBB.
Stevenson says Chocolate was extremely anxious when he was dropped off at the Animal Hospital and his situation never improved. She says it’s more common for older dogs to struggle while their owners are away on vacation.
