This has been all over social media and the written press is just starting to take a look at it. It happened on June 17, 2016, at a facility in/near Mina Abdullah that had a contract with KNPC. According to the story and various sources, supposedly 24 dogs (but as many as 40) were killed when the company lost it's contract - apparently in a form of revenge.
There are still 91 dogs at the facility and everyone is very concerned for them.
Note that I have not mentioned the name of the company nor it's owner/management because it would be illegal to do so in Kuwait. However, you can read any of the internationally-published stories to learn more.

I am saddened, sickened, and distressed by this. I go home and look at my own German Shepherd and wonder how anyone could be so evil and cold-hearted to such wonderful creatures. They will do anything for you for just a little love.
To all of you working to help in this case, God Bless You and keep up the good fight.
