Sponsored by: Paws for Hope and Faith

It has been brought to our attention by the citizens of Upson County that many healthy,
adoptable animals in the Upson County Animal Shelter are being needlessly euthanized.
Animals at Upson County Animal Shelter are being euthanized in record numbers by
Executive Director, Mr. Smart Earnest Web. WE are calling for answers and accountability.
Mr.Web has expressed little to no interest in having volunteers at the shelter, which is crucial for the animals.Mr. Web has also stated that he doesn't want to have other Georgia rescues to pull or foster from there.This again, is crucial.It would help make more space available.It also will get more pets homes and they will have a better chance at life.

This petition was created by Paws for Hope and Faith and Upson County citizens to share
with the public what the lack of appropriate management can escalate to. Paws for Hope and Faith and the citizens of Upson County want to make Upson County Animal Shelter
a place to be deemed a compassionate shelter for all animals brought to the facility.

WE hereby ask on behalf of Upson County citizens
that Mr. Smart Earnest Web step down immediately and an interim Acting Director;
willing to cooperatively work with the animals, citizens, and qualified rescue
organizations, be appointed.

      Mr. Smart Earnest Webb obviously has no compassion for animals and he is in the wrong postition. Animals who are unfortunate enough to be in his shelter are not given a chance to live. Get rid of this uncaring individual immediately.

      Great once again man shows just how evil he truly is. There is no safe place on this earth where God's creatures can live out their lives the way he expected them to do. Because man makes sure he takes what was given to them! Their freedom!
