First, how can a government official tasked with overseeing the shelter not know what the statistics are and how can they be unaware that they are not comparable to metro area counties even though we outspend all but Hamilton County? Secondly, why is Commissioner Whetstone unable to differentiate between a personnel issue and a personal issue?
The Flyer has a responsibility to the community to accurately investigate claims and ensure what they are reporting is true. Nothing is going to change through wishful thinking alone and the commissioners are not going to get our animal placement rates in line with others in the area unless the citizens demand it.
In conclusion, the commissioners practice of running our shelter differently than any other area shelter is not working. We have a new shelter, a proven staff in need of only effective leadership, residents who embrace animal adoptions, and healthy friendly animals in the shelter that would make welcome additions to our homes. Let us set our goals high.
