Savage allegations that Animal Control Officers shot and killed as many as 22 dogs at the county%u2019s animal shelter. After a volunteer saw that several dogs cages were empty she questioned an inmate asking where were all the dogs and the inmate told her that the dogs had been shot and killed at a landfill across the street from the shelter.
The volunteer went to the site and was able to dig up from a shallow grave 2 small puppies that were both shot, still with the marking of fresh splattered blood on and around them. AC is under the direction of the Sheriff Dept. This facilty is the very same place that was under scrutiny last summer for the way they handled mass euthanaisa with a broken down rusted gas chamber that was not even capable of being sealed during the gassing, causing the animals to die a very slow and agonizing death. Finally, after much pressure they tossed out the chamber onto the lawn. I personally contacted AC and spoke with a newly hired ACO who confirmed to me that the animals are taken and dumped at the landfill in plastic bags after they are dead.
According to NewsChannel36 when a call was made to the AC shelter, officials told them that "their employees have done nothing wrong".
Well animal lovers just look at this picture of one of the two precious puppies who must have been frightened to death at was was happening to them. They went from being in their cages or runs at animal control to being found all shot to death scattered at the land fill. One plastic bag apparently had dead puppies in the bag. God only know what they did to them before, during and after. To make it even worse many of these animals were already on hold to be rescued by other rescues. A chance at a new life after already being thrown out by someone but made it to safety. A place that was suppose to care for them and feed and protect them, until their rescues were able to claim them. Instead they arrived in a hell.
Any animals there are not safe. Please call and voice your plea asking for this to be fully investigated so the person(s) involved are heald accountable. Ask that the animal control officer be suspended immediately until this is resolved. Ask that Sheriff Parker also should be investigated since this is happening on his clock. Contact the Health department asking to visit the landfill site and dig up what could be be hundreds of animals that have been dumped there as trash. As these animals were clearly murdered, it is time for the County to be accountable for the animal abuse that seems to plague this facilty. Please contact any and all government officals asking for justice for these 22 dogs and puppies. RIP all "22".
We the undersigned are expecting that their will be a investigation on the 22 deaths of Chesterfield, SC animal control dogs and puppies that were brutally murdered at the hands of someone that had access to the shelter. We are sickened by this violent attack of helpless and precious dogs and puppies who are suppose to be safe in your facilty. We are asking that the landfill near the shelter also be investigated for the 22 shot dead and the possibility if more dead animals being dumped like trash by the shelter.
We are asking that until this investigation is completed and those that participated in this mass killing are held accountable that the current animal control officers be suspended or released during this investifgation including Sheriff Parker who overseas the facilty. We believe that someone will hear our plea and stop this from ever happening again. Thank you.
