Former Executive Director At Florida Animal Shelter Accused In $300K Embezzlement Case

Jim North, the former executive director of the Englewood Animal Rescue Sanctuary (EARS) in Sarasota County has been accused by the organization of embezzling as much as $300,000 from the agency. County investigators were notified last May by agency officials of the potential thefts after it was notified by Sun Trust Bank about "unusual activity" in its account and an internal review was conducted. No charges have been filed at this time and the investigation is ongoing. North left his position at EARS just prior to its report to authorities.
