— The woman accused of abusing and neglecting the animals in her pet store is out of jail tonight... and back in business.

Harnett County leaders say Audrey Collins posted bail and is awaiting charges on cruelty to animals. Investigators found dozens of dead birds and dogs last week in her home and pet store. The animals that survived are said to be healthy. Today officers gave Collins back the keys to her store and said she was free to resume business.
