(Reuters) - A north Georgia animal shelter's "Lucky Dog" adoption program deceived pet owners by promising not to euthanize their dogs for a $100 fee, then killed them instead, authorities said.
Dozens of animals were euthanized in this way, a 60-count indictment alleges.
Charges against the shelter's former director, Lowanda "Peanut" Kilby, include theft by taking, theft by deception, computer theft and racketeering, Rabun County District Attorney Brian Rickman told Reuters on Thursday.

The deception ran so deep that donors to the “Lucky” program received emails from Boggs Mountain claiming their sponsored animal was adopted by a loving family when in truth, the “pet” had been euthanized.
