  2. No Kill Shelter needs your help:

    I was checking out the No Kill Nation Blog & read the June 23, 2011 post “Cuba, Missouri, Votes to Go No Kill”. I decided to click on the link to the group’s FB page & found out the city appears to be undoing all their hard work!

    Their Animal Control Officer, Jeff, was ordered to read water meters the last three days of each month instead of doing animal control. Apparently, dogs weren’t fed & their pens weren’t clean for three days because the ACO was ordered to read meters instead.

    “Jeff was told by city officials, including the mayor and the supervisor at the police department and the supervisor at public works that he was not to go to the shelter to work, that it would interfere with the reading of water meters. Jeff called the police department and public works officials last month to remind them that someone would need to come and clean the shelter and feed the animals while he was reading water meters.”

    But that didn’t happen, and it’s been two months in a row that their ACO has been asked to do this. Officials appear to be undermining all the work that’s been done! People are now worried if the arranged transfers of dogs will happen now! Why are officials doing this?
