We hear there’s a nice little outbreak of disease going on at Louisville Metro Animal Services. I.E., animals being returned because they’re super-sick.
Obviously, it’s being kept extremely quiet/denied. Just like the continued flood of dogs leaving LMAS facilities with extreme Kennel Cough.
But that’s par for the course.
LMAS took a project that’s been going for years – something called Furry Features – and essentially killed it. It was a weekly newsletter/release that included photos and information about dozens of adoptable animals that was spread far and wide by advocacy organizations throughout the metro area. So what’d LMAS do? Killed it by including just five dogs and five cats in a release that gets distributed to next to no one.
Communications lockdown is SOP for LMAS.
Note: We’ll have something about LMAS in a few weeks that has Sadiqa Reynolds and Greg Fischer already sweating.
