Goodbye frying pan, hello fire:
The City of Memphis says it wants a second, outside look at the City Animal Shelter.
Wednesday afternoon, City Chief Administrative Officer George Little, announced talks are underway with the Humane Society of the United States.
Bloody hell. The HSUS evaluations have served places like Miami-Dade Animal Services so well, I guess Memphis shouldn’t be left out. (Other shelters too, have been duped by the HSUS shelter evaluation scheme.) Every pet killing facility wants a seal of approval from the organization responsible for whitewashing Michael Vick’s crimes of torture, sending 146 Pitbulls – including puppies still nursing from their dams – to their deaths in NC, and taking backyard pets from an owner in AL and dropping them off at gassing facilities.
The city says the local Humane Society had offered to come in and review the shelter free of charge, but the city wanted a national organization’s input.
Why does Memphis not want a free evaluation from a local group who would be in a position to understand the challenges specific to the area? What – does the local Humane Society actually save pets or something?
