RENSSELAER, N.Y. -- A viral Facebook post about a local pet shop is getting the attention of the Capital Region's animal lovers.

The post alleges Pet Stop in Rensselaer isn't taking care of its animals, saying the dogs look sick and are cramped in small cages.

The owner says this is not true, and one of the dogs was placed in the back because things were busy and she was there for her safety.

As of Sunday night, the Rensselaer Humane Society says it has not been contacted about the post.
