You Probably Don’t Remember This LMAS Director

We swiped these photos from Metro Government. Hit up their Flickr thingy for the originals.

But let’s take a trip down memory lane with failed Louisville Metro Animal Services director Justin Scally:






Remember him?

Of course you don’t. Just one in a long line of many failed directors.

Possibility City!

  1. He’s the one that had absolutely no idea what he was doing, and was paid handsomely for it – but at least had the excuse of being 12 years old.

  2. Shelby: Right. That’s why dozens of old fuckers are constantly asking how to enlarge images.

    Your concern trolling is as dumb as Kimberly Greenwell’s and you’ve done it for years. So here’s the deal: if you don’t like something, stop reading it.

  3. The real shame is the perfect candidate was interviewed for the job of Director, but they chose to hire Scally instead.

    The other candidate had over 20 years experience in sheltering, is highly respected both in KY and nationally, and–get this!–has a proven record of running a virtually no-kill shelter with such a high adoption rate their shelter is generally EMPTY. Not only that, but when folks in their community see an ACO truck parked on the streets, they gather around it to get answers to their questions about pet health, training issues, etc.

    This other candidate’s shelter consistently runs in the black, not $500,000 in the hole like L-Mess does. And this year, that candidate’s annual shelter fund-raiser had received pledges of $16,000 weeks before the event even began.

    And training? The candidate who wasn’t selected would have been able to properly train every person on the staff at LMAS, so you wouldn’t have an incident like what recently happened when an ACO came to someone’s door and announced that he was “a peace officer” and “didn’t need a warrant” to enter a citizen’s home.

    So, why wasn’t this other candidate hired on the spot? Because mayor Fischer has never intended to honor that much-touted plank of his campaign: Clean up LMAS, and instead wanted a Director who could be controlled and ‘handled,’ believing it was cheaper and easier to cover up the truth.

    And thus…we have the latest in what will continue to be a series of shocking and politically costly LMESS-ups which will only cease on the day Fischer finds his nads and decides to become an honorable man.

    (Spoiler Alert: Don’t hold your breath waiting for that to happen.)
