SAN JOSE, Calif. - The San Jose animal shelter will be audited because of a growing number of animals found dead.
The city launched an audit following a Mercury News investigation.
Last month, veterinarians, rescue partners and volunteers told the news organization that the shelter's cats weren't receiving adequate medical care.
And data shows the live-release rate dropped from 90 percent in 2020 to 75 percent this year.
The shelter's director says he agrees with the audit and acknowledged the shelter is facing challenges.
