Ex-Rabun County animal director pleads not guilty

Posted: Updated:
RABUN COUNTY, Ga. -

The fired director of a supposed no-kill animal shelter pleaded not guilty to charges that she pulled a fast one on the animal rescue world.

Lowanda "Peanut" Kilby was once known for saving impressive numbers of unwanted dogs and cats, but as FOX 5 I-Team reporter Randy Travis discovered, her reputation was built on a dark secret.

Kilby faces 60 counts of stealing donors' money -- funds that she promised would keep a certain dog or cat from being euthanized.  A FOX 5 I-Team investigation caught her secretly killing those animals.

Authorities say she pocketed at least $10,000, but say they may never know the true numbers of deaths and money.
