Victory

Roberta Caban: FULTON COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES, ATL -GA has been issues new leadership by county commissioners today. LIFELINE Animal Project will start in approximately 30 days.

ATLANTA city and FULTON county officials have received information with supporting documentation regarding questionable practice and multi-level corruption at our local animal shelter (FULTON COUNTY ANIMAL SERVICES.) Our shelter is in need of re-structure and re-organization, along with over-sight in the interim. We are asking our city (ATL) and county (FULTON) to responsibly take action on behalf of our voiceless animals and ensure their proper care, as well as secure our tax-funds are being used in the best interest our animals and community.

      Fulton County faces loss of animal services

      To the younger generation who communicates through social media, apparently putting photos of their credit cards and debit cards on a Twitter account is not a crazy idea.

      Fulton County officials: (assistant director) Tony Phillips & (county manager) Zachary Williams requested an extension of BHVF contract until June 2013. Fulton County commissioners did not extend the BHVF contract today. They also did not in-source Animal Control. Volunteers spoke and stated their concerns earlier in the meeting, when the public is allowed to. Commissioners, stated they have received many complaints and concerns form their constituency. They encouraged county officials to review evidence of below standard work performed under the current contract and to work with community groups, who clearly want to assist. Media networks were present

    10. Big day in ATL, GA tomorrow. Fulton County Commissioners VOTE 10am.

      Fulton County commissioners are voting on who will manage our shelter, Fulton County Animal Services, for the next 6 months. We are happy to report, after our meeting with FULTON county manager Zachary Williams, the county choose to re-open the bid to new vendors starting JUNE 2013. HOWEVER, QUALIFIED VENDORS ARE AVAILABLE TO TAKE OVER NOW. We DO NOT want Barking Hound Village Foundation re-newed or EXTENDED. Open the bid IMMEDIATELY so we can begin to re-form our shelter and protect our animals.

      Not a state resident but as a citizen of this country, I find this so disturbing that officials are not fulfilling their responsibility on behalf the tax payers of Georgia or on behalf of the innocent lives that are being killed and abused.

      This is important to me as a taxpayer who wants money to be spent wisely. As an animal lover I believe everyone who has the responsibility of caring for them should take that responsibility seriously.
