State Shuts Down Triangle Pet Control

The McKees Rocks animal control service allegedly defrauded the state by getting paid for services it didn't perform. The company is contracted by Bridgeville, Collier and South Fayette, among several other municipalities.

Triangle Pet Services of McKees Rocks, which works as a contracted animal control service in many local municipalities, has been shut down by the state.

KDKA-TV is reporting that the kennel's owner allegedly ordered employees to doctor the books.

The state is alleging the owner lied about the number of dogs euthanized, which cost the state in the tens of thousands of dollars.

The kennel is also accused of not properly caring for the dogs.

According to a Western Pennsylvania Humane Society brochure, Triangle Pet provides services to Collier and South Fayette, among other communities in the region. It's not known what those areas will do while Triangle Pet responds to the charges.

Bridgeville previously used Triangle Pet until two months ago when it terminated its agreement and hired Kym Secreet out of Washington County to do the work.
