Shelter Directors Say the Darndest Things
January 27, 2012
It’s award season. Don’t worry, if you just can’t make up your mind on which quote is most deserving, you can vote for more than one.
Your choices are:
- In response to the public outcry over the revelation that the Jackson Co pound kills some pets without ever checking them for microchips, director Colleen Macuk offered a policy shift.
- After I posted a photo of a worker at Memphis Animal Services hanging a cat by the neck with tongs, director Matthew Pepper told us we were not seeing what we were seeing.
- Responding to calls for Shawnee AC to publicly post photos of impounded pets online, Russell Frantz, chief of the police department which oversees the pound, blamed Nigerian scammers.
- Bay Co AC pound in FL kills 76% of its pets. Pound manager Bill Olasin told the local paper he suspects his staff members lie about the reasons they kill such an astronomical number of pets, coding most of the killings as behavioral or medical cases instead of the truth.
