Violence broke out at the Surrey Animal Resource Centre late last week when a man with an axe entered the premises.
Early Friday evening, Kim Marosevich, manager of animal care and control for Surrey, says an owner of one of the dogs at the Surrey Animal Resource Centre came in to the shelter with a weapon apparently wanting his dog back.
“I mean with a hatchet and an axe show up and threaten a bunch of animal lovers who are just trying to do the best for the animal in our care.”
Marosevich says after police arrested the man they also found an axe and other weapons stashed outside the building.
She says the man has since been released but she plans to pursue this incident further without hesitation.
