Stephen Spear, 67, and Linden Spear, 59, managers of The Haven-Friends for Life, a private no-kill shelter in Raeford, North Carolina, were arrested on Wednesday and face charges of animal cruelty and possession of a controlled substance, according to the Hoke County Sheriff’s Office. Raeford is about 110 miles east of Charlotte. Workers with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recovered almost 350 dogs, more than 280 cats, 47 horses and some farm animals from the 122-acre shelter over three days, said group spokeswoman Kelly Krause.
