I need your support in shutting down this horrid place and saving the over 160 Dogs that are suffering in horrific conditions at Olympic Animal Sanctuary. Dogs are living in filthy conditions in travel crates small kennels and dark rooms inside a metal building that has no heating or cooling. The Dogs are all living, breathing, feeling Creatures that deserve a healthy life, regular exercise, food, fresh water and a clean place to reside, Forks police investigated an Animal Cruelty complaint last year, the officer described an overwhelming odor of urine so strong that his eyes began to tear up and he began to cough. Some water bowls were clean, others had green slimy residue. The majority of crated Dogs didn't have access to water, the officer said. Steve Markwell, the man who runs the Olympic Animal Sanctuary told the Officer the Dogs eat every other day, and fed only unrefrigerated raw animal parts delivered frozen but not kept in a freezer and refrigerator because it broke down some time ago. The report said Markwell was very concerned conditions would be publicized or documented. Other noise and smell complaints were filed. An animal cruelty citation was written, but unissued. So the investigation concluded no violations of law. Law Enforcement needs to go in and shut this place down and rescue the Dogs that are suffering there, these Dogs are ALL going to need to be seen by a Vet, and will ALL need medical care. The fact that the Mayor and other Officials turn their heads, and defend this Man and allow this treatment of innocent Animals to continue is appalling! Because they are all Friends. At some point here Friendship has to take a backseat and the well being of the Dogs has to take precedence. Steve Markwell, needs to be removed, a Rescue and a Veterinarian needs to come in and take over the care of the Dogs.
