According to sources at Louisville Metro Animal Services (how bout that, Sadiqa and Jackie, you thought our sources had been fired or quit) tell us something disgusting:
Two-week-old kittens arrived at LMAS and on Saturday a plea was distributed via Facebook for a foster home to bottle feed them until they could be adopted. Several people responded and reached out to LMAS in an attempt to serve as fosters. So what happened? LMAS euthanized them.
What was that, again, about LMAS getting its ducks in a row?
In another instance, a seven-year-old purebred Persian was euthanized – rather than going to Animal House for adoption – because yet another URI went untreated.
And you wonder why we’re ready to give up on that joint unless the rest of the agency’s management are moved or fired.
Greg Fischer can announce plan after plan and interim director after interim director. But until he makes real changes and personally takes responsibility (when is he going to spend a day at LMAS covered in feces and guts?), well, you know how the story goes. This situation will stagnate.
