Hand4Paws would like to thank you for adding your voice demanding justice for the slayings of dogs at the Chesterfield shelter. This petition will be presented during a rally by the Animal Adoption League on April 21 on the steps of South Carolina's State House. This petition will also be sent to SLED and South Carolina's AG.
We all hope that something good can still come out of this and that there are improvements at the shelter and those responsible will be held accountable. We want the dogs to have their justice. The Chesterfield 22 (and others that have perished so cruelly at the shelter) are gone but they are not forgotten.
Warm Regards and thank you speaking for those that have no voice.

3/21/11 More horrific stories from the Chesterfield Shelter are coming to light. Information courtesy of Seattle DOGSPOT reports that a former shelter worker claims that the shelter manager and CONVICTED DRUG DEALER was taking pitbulls from the shelter for dog fighting and that the inmates were using the equipment to train dogs for dog fighting. Other claims are that instead of using the budget to purchase the appropriate drugs for euthanasia, shelter pets were shot and buried in the landfill and 91% of the budget went for salaries and benefits. The State Law Enforcement Division and the S.C. Attorney Generals Office is currently investigating.
The details go on to the corruption at the Chesterfield Shelter. For more information please visit: http://www.seattledogspot.com/
There are allegations that 22 dogs and puppies were taken to the Chesterfield landfill in SC and shot by shelter employees. Rescuers were horrified as many of the dogs were to be picked up by rescue group that had agreed to taken them from the shelter for adoption. The latest update states that the shelter has closed and 5 shelter employees are on administrative leave pending an investigation. It is believed that about 50 dogs have suffered this horrible fate.

Demand a thorough investigation, termination & prosecution of employees at CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, S.C animal shelter and Sherriff Sam Parker if allegations are substantiated! Further demand that funds be appropriated to humanely euthanize animals using lethal injection. Please also insist that rescue groups be allowed to pull animals for future care and adoptions. Thank you for speaking out on behalf of the innocent animals!
