In light of the LMAS flustercuck regarding fosters and the meeting that took place there an hour or so ago, we thought it’d be a good idea to highlight a couple issues.
Remember when Louisville Metro Animal Services shut down during a disease outbreak?
Remember when Justin Scally, Greg Fischer and Sadiqa Reynolds were adamant about all animals being tested?
Yeah, about that.
Turns out, according to an LMAS employee and volunteers, not all dogs and cats were tested as promised. They were merely killed.
As of this week, the Manslick location has turned away not one, not two but seven people (all asked to go there by me, admittedly) who have shown up to try make an adoption. This has been going on for weeks and weeks. They’re told the only animals up for adoption are located at Animal House on Newburg. Despite, of course, all animals being legally up for adoption unless they’re involved in a court case.
And the girl with the drug conviction? We hear she’s still causing problems when it comes to providing pain medication to animals because she cannot administer or handle narcotics. Note: If you kept an animal at your home, in severe pain and didn’t offer proper care? You’d be charged with animal cruelty and neglect.
Meanwhile, Greg Fischer and crew continue to paint a puppies and rainbows picture of LMAS.
Meanwhile, Jim King does everything BUT address LMAS. He brought the Zoo up in deficit discussions because his wife (a true Louisville gem) is on the board, though. Nary a mention of cleaning up LMAS to save budget dollars.
It’s time for the Democratic Metro Councilman we’ve been hinting about to sack up and speak out on LMAS. Because no one else has the guts to try improving the place.
