The overhaul continued Friday at Boston’s city-run animal shelter after the Animal Rescue League discovered such extensive mismanagement and neglect that some pound employees were moved to tears.
Late last month, the organization warned the city that the Roslindale shelter was in crisis.

The mayor’s administration launched an investigation, moved 35 animals to other shelters, and suspended the city’s director of animal control and prepared to fire him.
The newly appointed interim director of animal control, John Meaney, said the city was taking steps to support staff at the overburdened pound and to provide better care.
One of the changes, Meaney said, is dog officers are being redirected to become more involved in animal care.
“We’re going to change the way things operate here.”
