UPDATE March 21, 2012 – The webpage to which I referred yesterday, March 20th has been taken down and is no longer visible – no doubt a coincidence!
No need to trouble “shelter” management with pesky things like facts! After all, out of site out of mind – right? What the public can’t see, the public won’t question – right?
Folks, don’t be fooled and don’t be quite!
That’s YOUR shelter and the city and county “officials” work for YOU! As long as they are spending YOUR taxes and drawing a paycheck paid for by YOU the taxpayer, they are answerable to YOU.
Election day is REPORT CARD day. Animal shelter management and employees are ultimately accountable to an elected official. You may not be able to directly influence change at the shelter, but you can fire city council members with your vote. And I believe that is the appropriate place to start.
A couple of Questions:
Would you allow these “officials” to mismanage your business the way they are running the Animal Shelter?
How long would you tolerate their apathy and incompetence if you were paying all the bills directly out of your bank account and all the animals belonged to you?

Folks, we see here an example of how efficiently your “shelter” is being managed.
We are told on the shelter’s website that “Every effort is made to update this page Monday-Friday by 11:00 a.m.”
However, we also see on the same page that the last updated was February 10, 2011.
The image below was taken from the Animal Shelter’s website today, March 20, 2012. That’s 39 days since the website was updated.
Question: How many days are animals held at the “shelter” before they are executed? I wonder how many of the helpless animals shown below are still alive. Do you think their chances of survival would be enhanced if the public had some way of knowing that they are being held at the shelter?
I don’t know about you, but I am one taxpayer who is disgusted with the manner in which my hard-earned money is being spent by the Animal Shelter.
