Recent allegations from heart-sticking animals without sedation to euthanizing adoptable pets instead of vetting them and lying about all of this to pet owners and potential adopters (and telling part time employees to do that also)to possible involvement with misappropriated funds-approximately $41,000.

      This is not the first time the Wexford County Animal Control has been involved in a controversy, although it wasn’t something being done by anyone at the shelter. Back in February of 2012, the Sheriff’s Department was found to have misappropriated approximately $41,000 of the Animal Control money into other areas of the department.
      The County Commissioners should be getting in on the act as well by passing a motion to ban ALL heart sticking at the shelter as a matter of general policy. If you agree, you can email the commissioners at their contact information below:

      District 3 – Robert Hilty

      Allegations Surface Involving Wexford County Animal Shelter Actions

      When the cries of dogs and cats in agony echo down the halls of the Wexford County Animal Shelter (which is under the management of the Sheriff's Department), former part-time animal shelter attendant Kathy Rodgers Dennis says that they come from animals who are being euthanized by heart sticking (intracardiac injection) without being sedated first....

      This "shelter" is a place of agonizing death to strays and pets. No-one who is capable of doing these abusive practices had ANY right to ever be around animals

      As the top predator in the food chain we are cruel enough to animals but when it happens and is caused by those who are charged by us with their care the sin is compounded. We must always try and help all creatures who for what ever reason can not help or speak for themselves. Watch the movie "Tears of the Sun" research what happened at Wounded Knee So. Dakota Dec 29, 1890, or Oct 23 1983 Beirut Lebanon, or today at www.seashepherd.org. We are the guardians of this planet and we have failed at that task.

      For love, logic, humanity, allow our youth to learn justice and allow people who REALLY want a job and REALLY know the meaning of compassion.
