FAYETTEVILLE, NC (WTVD) — The NC Department of Justice is stepping in after several Fayetteville pet-owners claim a pet sitter returned their dogs malnourished and sickly.
Back in Dec., Brianna Brassfield was planning to go back to New Mexico for the holidays but needed someone to watch her dog, Duke.
Brassfield decided to contact Shiloh Taylor, a local who runs an in-home pet sitting business called Golden Girl Pet Care.
“I read her reviews, and it had good reviews and everything,” Brassfield said.
A meet and greet later, Brassfield dropped Duke off at Taylor’s house on Dec. 26 and wouldn’t be back in Fayetteville until Jan. 5.
Brassfield returned home to a horrifying surprise.
