Community Support for Kerrin Conklin, SPCA director

This petition had 259 supporters

On May 25, 2017, Kerrin Conklin, who has held the position of executive director for the Central New York SPCA for five months was infairly fired from her position for authorizing euthanization of 14 cats that were exposed to ringworm and began exhibiting signs of infestation.  This critical decision, which was very difficult and heartbreaking to make, was a result of exhausting all other option ideas and supported by several medically trained individuals within the SPCA organization, including veterinarian staff.  As ringworm is highly dangerous and contagious, It was agreed that this action was necessary to protect the health of the remaining SPCA animals, its employees/vendors and general public.

Kerrin has a history of being a "friend to all animals" and during her short 5 months as executive director, Kerrin has fought tirelessly to improve the tarnished reputation of the SPCA and the quality of lives of the animals that are housed there.  Anybody that knows her is aware that her decisions are solely based on the best interest of all of the SPCA animals.

Kerrin has a commitment to fight for these animals. Please join us in support of Kerrin Conklin and the fight for her to retain her position as the executive director.
