The Spartanburg Humane Society said its relationship with Spartanburg County is over at the close of business Monday.
Humane Society officials said during a press conference that the county has not paid its bill. They said the county owes the animal shelter nearly $110,000.
Officials said they will no longer accept strays that are picked up by Spartanburg County Animal Control as of Monday evening. They said county residents will not be allowed to drop off stray animals as of 5 p.m. Saturday.
County officials said they never received the bill from the Humane Society that was dated Sept. 19 and sent via email and the mail. The Humane Society said they won't accept animals picked up by Animal Control until that bill is paid.
The Council said they plan to pay the bill Tuesday after they received another copy of it on Monday.
The state Attorney General ordered county officials to hold stray animals for five days before putting them up for adoption or euthanizing them.
The order came after it was revealed that the shelter was holding strays for only three days. The shelter said it was following a county ordinance that required strays be held for three days.
