“The same day Newport Beach voted to switch animal shelters over allegations that the Orange County Humane Society was unsanitary and treated animals poorly, Costa Mesa representatives affirmed that city’s commitment to continuing its partnership with the facility.

“Newport Beach has pretty specific details and allegations, and we haven’t experienced the same thing,” Costa Mesa spokesman Tony Dodero said Tuesday evening, hours before the Newport Beach City Council vote. “We’re going to investigate them ourselves, and partner with the shelter to fix any issues… We have not decided to take action yet.” ”
