The director and county commissioners at Mercer County Animal Shelter have been putting animals to sleep that have people wanting to adopt or rescue them. They works against all the volunteers and as much as we try we have not been able to keep the animals from being put to sleep. The director has banned and ran off many of the volunteers that used to foster and set up adoption events for these animals because she does not like them. She has even put animals to sleep after hours without any of the employees or volunteers knowing and stating they were aggressive or sick when neither is true. This shelter does not have a fax machine or a chip scanner! The local vet office has complained that they are not receiving payments from them to spay/neuter their pets. The county commissioners refuse to help with the shelter and have told many people to just leave when someone approaches them about the problems the shelter has been having. The ventilation in the cat room is very poor and many cats are getting sick if not adopted out quickly, but no one will put money towards the shleter to have it fixed. Instead of vetting any of the animals they wait until they are deathly ill then put them to sleep. These people are not advocates for these animals and unless we make some changes there these innocent animals will continue to suffer!! We need a change and it needs to start with her and the commisioners! Let them know that you do not agree with her actions!

Stop killing innocent animals that have adopters and rescues wanting them!

I've been trying to save multiple animals from this shelter in WV and the director, Stacie Shampo, puts animals to sleep even with people wanting to adopt or rescue them. She has banned and ran off many of the volunteers that used to foster and set up adoption events for these animals because she does not like them. She has even put animals to sleep after hours without any of the employees or volunteers knowing. She is not an advocate for animals and unless we get her out of there these innocent animals will continue to suffer!! Please share this and lets get someone that actually cares for these animals!
