Investigate and Inspect Safe Haven Animal Sanctuary for all illegal acts that have been overlooked for years. The Executive Director has been removed but misappropriation of funds, fraud and animal neglect/warehousing must not be dismissed with this removal. The Board of Directors (past and present) should be held accountable for allowing this to happen at this non-profit animal shelter where laws were ignored. Inspect the facility, all records including but not limited to financial and animal records and any outside private kennel records they may have used for hoarding. They must be investigated for noncompliance with all Delaware/Federal laws including Delaware Shelter Standards law SB 280.

Some of the facts in this case can be viewed on Thank you.
