Olympic-Animal-Sanctuary-Ducey-305.jpg
Steve Markwell, owner of the Olympic Animal Sanctuary in Forks, WA is seen going inside the facility on December 16, 2013.  He remained in there for almost an hour. No exact numbers on how many dogs are inside are known but a friend of his who has been inside estimates around 125.  Markwell has been under fire for neglecting the dogs after volunteers filed a complaint in 2012. The City of Forks police department investigated and found horrific conditions but were unable to do anything about it because the state governing animal sanctuaries are very lax.
