Concerned citizens of Campbell County demand an investigation into the Campbell County Animal Shelter and it's practices of no advertisement of animals to give them a chance for adoption. Euthanasia within 3 days or less and suspicions of no anesthesia with heart stick and sometimes in front of other animals. Possible breed discrimination and euthansia in most cases without a chance or time for adoption. No pictures on Petfinder, only one person is allowed to take photos of only some animals and rarely. Little or no basic medication or simple medical care upon entrance. Very little or no volunteers or photos allowed, and discrimination on who can volunteer and take photos to share. Possible discrimination in allowance of who can or can not adopt an animal and differences fees for adoption. Records should be made public on numbers of animals euthanized or adopted, and complete records kept on all animals. Possible acts of extreme animal cruely with animals having no heat in the winter and no blankets on concrete floors. Possilble and reported instant euthansia, along with unclear use of funds that should be used for animal health and care. The Shelter Director Betty Crumley has said she spent money on decorating the shelter facility, instead of spending money for animals without blankets! The animals are going without! With the help of the world wide media it would cost so little to buy a cheap camera and load the shelter animals photos online for adoption! Instead the animals are being put down, they dont stand a chance! Practices at this shelter are criminal and inhumane. Also the suspicion of illegal use of funds and the cover up of these funds. We are a group requesting entrance to volunteer, photo and share, and care for animals and are being blocked out of the shelter and refusing any help from our local officials while these horrors are continuing.
See the website of this countys shelter for yourself. No support for adoption of these animals are being made. No pictures and barley any posts since 2010. If we dont step in and help who will?
Recent update******* we are still trying to get enough signatures more video's are surfacing about this campbell county shelter 4/1/13
Also it has finally surfaced and hit local news media WBIR on 4/4/13. Those responsible are still denying they have abused any animal that has come to the shelter. Watch the video for yourself and decide if this is a voice of a liar.
The shlter has been closed for investigation, resuers pitched in and rescued the remaining animals at the shelter. When the results of this investigation are public I will post updates here. Please continue to sign the petition, until changes are made for the shelter animals the fight must continue!
