We read with interest this WAVE3 story about No Kill Louisville’s 5K — an event, mind you, centered around chocolate. Something that’s deadly for dogs and can cause damage even in small quantities.
Here’s the interesting part:
The money raised will go towards fostering, adopting, a pet food bank, low cost spay and neuter vouchers.
Unfortunately for the story? That’s not based in reality.
NKL no longer has a foster/adoption program.
There is no spay/neuter program. In fact, Metro Councilman Kelly Downard’s office confirmed with us a few weeks ago that the organization was denied a grant because it was, paraphrased, no longer equipped to handle a program like that.
Possibility City! Where the local television station can’t be bothered to fact check the tripe it releases to the ill-informed public, potentially lending its hand to questionable financial activity.
In other news, the organization is still withholding records, refusing to comply with requests and giving what few dogs they’ve actually helped to a dog hoarder.
