Firing Franklin County dog shelter staff for random dog deaths
I am very involved in dog rescue, working with several different shelters around Ohio. I have fostered, transported, held fundraisers, walked dogs, volunteered......whatever was needed to help save innocent lives. I also interact and work with multiple rescue people around the state. Franklin County Dog Shelter is, BY FAR, the most inhumane, 'worst run' dog shelter in Ohio: meanwhile, they have the most resources, money, best facility, most employees, multiple, over-compensated administrators in the Midwest! BUT, the actual effort at this shelter is minimal, with apparently no oversight. Dogs are just a COMMODITY. As a result, common basic help, and programs (like foster or training programs) are non-existent! The latest unfair DEATH has brought people to a breaking point! AMARI, a frightened little dog who had won the hearts of the shelter volunteers and the public alike, was KILLED by the incompetent, clueless "people in charge" at the Franklin County Dog Shelter. This happened on the morning of the very day AMARI was to be picked up by rescue. (New paragraph) A kennel tech did NOT follow proper procedures, by using the guillotine door to separate Amari from the hectic, loud, scary morning cleaning rituals at the shelter. He didn't bother to take proper precautions.... EVERYONE knew she was a very frightened little girl who may bite if not given the proper chance to adjust and warm up to people. Given that chance, she was such a loving, cuddly sweetheart. This employee ignored protocol, which was especially necessary in the morning cleaning atmosphere, and ended up getting bitten out of fear. The employee should have been terminated! ARMAI should still be alive and in her foster home! FRANKLIN COUNTY RESIDENTS DEMAND REFORM AT FCDS. REPLACE THE CURRENT LEADERSHIP AND FIND REAL, DEDICATED DIRECTORS AND STAFF WHO CARE ABOUT THE ACTUAL DOGS...LEADERS WHO WILL INSTITUTE COMMON PROGRAMS AVAILABLE TO HELP THESE DOGS WITH BEHAVIOR AND MEDICAL ISSUES.
