In a Facebook post, a colleague at her non-profit wrote that numerous animals brought to Hedges were ill and she administered care and medication as the natural disaster unfolded and roadways, and a way to licensed vets, became impassable.

In a Facebook post, she says Wayne County animal shelter services manager Frank Sauls called her on Monday, Sept. 17, telling her that he was at the warehouse. She is charged with the following: 1 count of administering amoxicillin to Big Momma, 1 count of administering Tramadol to Big Momma, 3 counts of administering amoxicillin to a white Siamese cat, 3 counts of administering a topical antibiotic ointment (triple antibiotic from Dollar Tree) to a white Siamese cat, 3 counts of administering amoxicillin to a cat known as Sweet Pea, 1 count of administering amoxicillin to an unnamed black kitten, and 1 count of solicitation to commit a crime (asking for donation of Tramadol (that was suppose to be a request for a vet)).

In a statement, Wayne County officials said animal control officers had "serious concern regarding the practice of veterinary medicine without a license and the presence of controlled substances".

"The goal was to make sure they were not out there drowning".

'We had an elderly couple, they were evacuating that afternoon, and there was no way they could take 18 animals with them'.

In an interview with WNCN, she acknowledged her emergency shelter was not registered with the state, but said she was simply looking out for the well-being of helpless animals.

Hedges can't figure out what all the fuss is about.

Wayne County is about an hour's drive southeast of Raleigh. "If your animal was in that condition, would you want someone to leave them to get sicker or stay in pain?"

Players to watch in Seahawks’ home opener vs Cowboys
Given his brief absence Monday night, and the team's overall lack of carries through two games, all eyes will be on Carson Sunday. Carson finished with 102 yards, the first Seattle running back to top 100 yards since late in the 2016 season.

"Our mission was to save as many animals from the flood that we could", Hedges said.

'But that is for the courts to decide'.

The small farming community of Nichols, South Carolina, about 40 miles from the coast, was completely inundated by water, Mayor Lawson Batter said Saturday.

'But at this point, it's very early in the investigation'.

Fire ants typically float until they hit dry land, said Adrian Alan Smith, head of the museum's Evolutionary Biology & Behavior Lab, according to the Charlotte Observer.

"From boots on the ground to technology that we have, we are trying to be able to get the message out", Hodge said in the video feed, advising people not to await an official evacuation order should they feel unsafe. "I hope people think".

Kathie Davidson, a volunteer with Crazys Claws N Paws, said the temporary shelter was in the process of receiving the necessary permits to be a permanent shelter. Her nonprofit animal rescue shelter helps low-income families with veterinary bills and other animal needs, according to WNCN-TV. There was a kennel set up with pads that dogs could be taken to to use the bathroom.
