Amber Shahan started this petition to Hocking County Board of Elections

As many of you have likely seen in the recent news, dogs have been suffering in neglectful and abusive conditions at The Hocking County Dog Shelter. Allegations were brought to the news by Anna Wright, former employee of the shelter.

Allegations which included no heat or cooling within the building, no access to drinking water due to frozen conditions, no protocols for infectious diseases, selling donated items to the public or simply dumping them in the garbage, not allowing volunteers and restricting the hours of employees, and the excessive use of euthanizing healthy and perfectly adoptable dogs. Many allegations included photo or video proof. Anna followed chain of command, she created a proposal including the problems with the shelter and how to go about fixing them. This proposal was given to the commissioners, they adamantly denied knowing about the conditions of the shelter.

When nothing was done to improve the lives of these helpless animal, Anna made the decision to go to the news, this decision ultimately cost her her job. The commissioners were now pressed to make some sort of decision. They ended the position of the dog warden and shut down the shelter to allow for renovations, all dogs were then housed with the humane society. The humane society of Hocking County is also a kill shelter.

As of today, 06/06/2019, dogs have returned to the shelter with absolutely no changes made to ensure quality of life. This situation is absolute proof of corruption, ignorance, and neglect of the power given to them by the voting citizens of Hocking County. For this reasons we are demanding a recall of commissioners Jeff Dickerson, Gary Waugh, and Sandy Ogle, President.

Please join me in signing this petition and doing what is right for the animals of the shelter and the citizens of Hocking County!
