Pet Health Care

Animal care is an important service to provide and it can help the Domestic animals to have a healthy life. Different Animal healthcare centers are now you can see providing quality treatment and affordable health care services. Pet owners are now bit more relax because they are getting the proper treatment for their own Pets. Vets are more responsible for such works and they have to be well accomplished in their job. A successful surgical operation or treatment can save a life and that is the life of an animal. Pet Hospital Newbury Park

Looks like the 'Weasels' are

Looks like the 'Weasels' are saying, "Everything in this 'Chicken House' is going along just fine; we are doing our job. If there are any problems here, we can take care of them; we'll just appoint an investigating committee. Just don't go poking around and be sure you don't lock the door at night." Now, is that the way to run a 'Chicken House'?

What?

So you are calling the many wonderful folks that give graciously of their time, energy, money and expertise to ensure the care and welfare of the animals that have come to them in all kinds of conditions, and that those animals have the best chance of adoption to a loving new home, "weasels". You offer NO facts, no substance, just childish innuendo.

Then why is the County

Then why is the County Manager asking the Sheriff to investigate?

The County Manager and Some Commissioners

Are not fans of the president of the non-profit that runs the shelter. Some commissioners didn't appreciate a few nasty grams from a few shelter supporters and are lifting their leg on anything that has to do with the shelter. That's no secret. Though they are doing their due diligence looking into the complaints of a disgruntled former employee, I wonder if it will make the news when the Sheriff finds his complaints baseless as all the others have.

Fired Worker

I personally know and have had dealings with the fired worker Scott Bailey. The county's investigation should be short and sweet. Two investigations by qualified personnel have found his allegations baseless. All the county needs to do is take a look at his criminal and civil record at the courthouse ( these are public records )and they will find he has made false allegations against other decent people for revenge and personal gain. You don't have to believe me just do the research.

Reclaiming his dog

There was more to the story of the young man trying to reclaim his dog. The dog was stolen and taken to a shelter an hour away. This young man was searching on Facebook and had filed a missing dog report at the Pasquotank shelter. A Facebook friend posted to him that there was a dog that looked like his dog who had distinct markings at the Currituck shelter. Sure enough it was his missing dog. Because he didn't claim his dog sooner he now had to adopt his own dog. He showed them he had in fact reported the dog missing at his local shelter and was searching for his dog. But no mercy was given to the dog or his owner and they refused to give the dog back, insisting on a new owner adoption fee and neutering fir his own dig. In essence the shelter was selling stolen property. He never refused to pay the fee. The shelter was forcing the owner to neuter his own dog. The young man was trying to get the money and even asked to be allowed to choose where the dog was neutered to save money. The shelter refused that request also. Knowing he was trying to get the money the shelter then adopted the dog out to someone else. This was a cruel act to separate this dog and owner. What right did this shelter have to sell a stolen dog? Why was their first priority not reuniting the owner and dog? They knew from his comments and calls from his father that the young man wanted his dog back. This was hateful and appalling to treat the owner and dig this way.
