PART IV ~ Last post.. thank you for patitently reading
Since this crisis, I have learned more than I ever wanted to know about All Creatures Great and Small.
At this point, what AGCS needs is to be shut down by the NC State Attorney General. There are funds being donated by the thousands but I can't see where it is being spent. I watched a woman write a check for $1000 there yesterday and earmarked it for medical/spay/neuter. The animals need veterinary attention yet no vets have been on site in 2 days. Why? Because the directors fear the animals being taken away for treatment and they can't bear to let them go under any circumstances.
I don't understand why the NC Dept. of Ag isn't shutting them down. The directors are refusing help by other groups. They are refusing to allow adoptions. They are refusing treatment of the animals. This needs to end.
One of the volunteers told me yesterday that they recently had a black lab adopted after she had been there for 3 years. She beamed as she told me how proud they were to have kept her alive for those 3 years so that she could be placed. No matter that she lived in a concentration camp for those 3 years and, as a result of being forced to eliminate in her den (crate), will probably never be able to be housetrained and may be dumped at a shelter as a result.
I passed the crate of a pit bull and it had a sticky note on the front telling the staff to only put 1-2" of litter in his crate. Otherwise, he would kick it out. Litter?!?!?! In a dog's crate?!
I hope that everyone reading this will cross post it widely to every human being you know on the planet. Ask everyone to write or call NC Attorney General Roy Cooper at http://www.jus.state.nc.us/lrframe.htm
and demand that something be done to shut this shelter down permanently and that court orders be written preventing the directors from ever starting another animal shelter.
One woman here who is employed at a shelter nearby says that she received death threats when her name was mentioned as having talked about ACHS to a person talking to the media.
I heard today that NC Rep Carolyn Justice is all behind the director to help her locate a new facility. I think someone needs to invite Ms. Justice to go work out there for a day or two and see if she gets a different perspective. Feel free to call her at 919-733-5905 or email her at [email protected]
and suggest that she do that before she lends her support to the efforts of these torturers.
The other state Senator who needs to hear from us is Tom Apadocka. Call him at (919) 733-5745 or email him at [email protected].
These folks need to know that many groups and individuals are willing to help but because of the sickness of the folks running the show, innocent animals are suffering needlessly, as help is turned away.
Please join me in starting a national campaign to shine the blazing bright lights of truth on this story. If anyone has any contacts at 60 Minutes, 20/20, 48 Hours, etc. I am sure they could get loads of information from PETA, who recently went undercover in this facility. OR they could just send a reporter themselves. The truth is there for all to see. No one is attempting to hide anything. They are so sick, they don't even see the filthy, disgusting conditions these animals are imprisoned in. Interesting that an abandoned prison is where they are . . .
The locals have been unable to get this shelter shut down for years. Perhaps some national attention can get the job done. As an internet community, we have a VERY loud voice.
