We Want Change Now!

      New Iberia, LA

MD Stockstill Consultants is currently receiving $49,999+ per year from Iberia Parish .  This contracted amount for a Director of Iberia Parish Animal Control is not spending the tax payer's money effectively, and a long time pattern of inadequate care that is ongoing at the Animal Control Shelter warrants immediate termination and non-renewal of this contract.   A full time Shelter Manager would be more cost effective, requiring an annual salary well below the current amount and more in line with shelters of equivalent size in the surrounding parishes. In addition, a Full time on site Shelter Manager would provide full time supervision and training of staff and oversee the facility to eliminate the rampant spread of disease currently overtaking the shelter. Animals are suffering from inadequate nutrition in the care of the facility and poor sanitation practices are contributing to painful infections in the animals and lethal diseases. We need change NOW!!  We need a Full Time Shelter Manager NOW!!!

      Let's keep it going! We will have a printed version available if anyone is interested in carrying a paper version, especially in New Iberia!! The Leopard may be trying to hide his spots with the new public hours, attempts at cleaning, contacts with surrounding shelters, attempts at petfinder.com and improved cage cards (that we introduced to him THREE MONTHS AGO)...but he is still a Leopard and will resort to old habits!! THERE ARE STILL sick puppies in Animal Control!!

      every chance that can be given should be used to save these homeless animals. And not just have them put down because one person can't or wont spend a litle extra time to save a life. Hes in the wrong business. get Rid of HIM!
