FACT: JEFF BASS at ROBESON COUNTY ANIMAL SHELTER IN ST PAULS, NORTH CAROLINA, KILLS ALMOST EVERY DAY!!! THERE ARE NUMEROUS VIDEOS AND PICTURES OF ANIMALS BEING ABUSED AND EUTHANIZED INHUMANELY. THERE IS A STORY ON THE NET OF A WOMAN THAT WENT TO RESCUE SOME ANIMALS BACK IN JAN 2010 AND HEARD A WORKER SAY "SUFFER ON THIS YOU SON OF A BITCH" AS HE USED A HEART STICK TO EUTHANIZE A POOR DOG THAT WAS NOT SEDATED OR UNCONSCIOUS. THIS IS A VERY CRUEL AND PAINFUL WAY TO DIE FOR THE ANIMAL. THERE ARE SEVERAL WITNESSES AND DOCUMENTED CASES SUPPORTING THAT BASS AND HIS "WORKERS" ENJOY KILLING THESE POOR ANIMALS. THEY PUT DOWN 50+ ANIMALS A WEEK IN THIS SHELTER. PEOPLE, WE HAVE GOT TO STOP THIS MAD MAN!!! HE DOESN'T DESERVE TO BE AROUND ANIMALS...NOR DO HIS WORKERS! THE PICTURES AND VIDEOS ON THE WEB ARE HEART BREAKING. THE ANIMALS ARE NOT GIVEN A FAIR CHANCE TO BE AVAILABLE FOR RESCUE/ADOPTION, THEY LIE ABOUT HOLDING AN ANIMAL WHILE PEOPLE ARE ON THEIR WAY TO PICK THEM UP...WHEN THEY GET THERE, THE ANIMAL HAS ALREADY BEEN KILLED. WE HAVE TO GET THE MEDIA MORE INVOLVED. EVERYTIME THEY DO A STORY ON HIM, HE PLAYS THE "POOR MAN BEING ATTACKED BY ANIMAL LOVERS" CARD, AND HE SOMEHOW TURNS OUT LOOKING LIKE THE VICTIM IN THIS. I ASSURE YOU, HE IS NOT THE VICTIM HERE...IT'S THESE POOR, HELPLESS ANIMALS THAT SUFFER. HELP DO YOUR PART AND SIGN THIS PETITION IN AN EFFORT TO REMOVE THIS MAN FROM EVER DOING THIS AGAIN!!!
- The President of the United States
I am writing to you in desperation. We are getting a petition together and signed in an effort to convince you to review/modify the animal shelter laws in numerous states. North Carolina is one of the worst out there. Utah, Kentucky, and Indiana are some others. For example, there is a "Kill Shelter" in St Pauls, NC called Robeson County Animal Shelter. This facility is being "run" by Jeff Bass. He and his "workers" have been caught on camera and video on many occasions abusing and inhumanely euthantizing animals. Their preferred method there is "Heart Sticking" and the gas chamber. Heart sticks are only to be used if the animal is comotose or completely sedated. It is possibly one of the most painful ways to die...and takes several minutes...meanwhile, they are being held up by poles or their limbs as they suffer in pain. They then drop to the ground, and are dragged outside like yesterdays trash. It's almost like some sort of third world country or something there, the way they handle these poor animals. The DEA has already shut them down a few times, but they are still in business as usual. The media has done a few stories on them, but some how Jeff Bass spins it around to make it seem like he is the victim. I assure you, he is NOT the victim here...it is these poor, defenseless animals, as well as all of us that try to save them on a daily basis. The animals there don't get a fair chance at being rescued, as many of them are killed before being offered. Please help us, and get this man man and his "crew" out of there, and may they never work with animals again. They should be held accountable on thousands of counts of animal cruelty as well! It's basically like a concentration camp for animals. I beg you, please do some research on this place, and others like it, and let's put an end to "legalized" animal cruelty, and give animal lovers the chance to give these precious creatures a life they so very much deserve!!! We feel that state legislature may not have the authority to make the changes needed...which is why we are targeting Federal government on this matter. Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon.
