      Please crosspost this to anyone wanting to help put a stop to the admin
      and policies at Gaffney AS in SC. They are impossible to get ahold
      off, and there hours and treatment of the homeless animals seem to be in
      question. Since I live too far to go there, but I do work with Dana
      Martin I am asking this shelter to reconsider some policies hours etc.
      We lost some peke/pom mixes there recently due to no one ever calling
      back or writing back.

      If anyone is close enough or has time to find out what officials oversee
      this shelter etc, maybe we can do our e-mail campaign to them also, and
      bring chances too this shelter. I do know county officials especially in
      an election year and they listen to the public, and for every e-mail
      or phone call they receive they know that people are looking at there
      county and city. I also know this is a terrible time to lose a county
      job, and being let go do to rescues from all over the country and SC to
      encourage change to save dying homeless animals may not be a positive
      thing when looking for a new position. Post this everywhere! Someone
      needs to find out who runs this shelter in county government and start
      calling and e-mailing them for changes, even if it means staff changes
      etc!!!

      Per
      _mcarpen6@..._ (mailto:mcarpen6@...) (_@..._
      (mailto:mcarpen6@...) )

      THE SHELTER IN GAFFNEY, S.C. HAS GONE CRAZY AND WE NEED YOUR HELP.
      THEY HAVE PUT SO MANY RESTRICTION ON "*ANYONE"* COMING INTO THE
      SHELTER THE BABIES ARE DYING, DYING, DYING. IT IS ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE
      AND I DESPERATELY NEED YOUR HELP. THE CURRENT HOURS FOR "*ANYONE"* TO
      COME INTO THE SHELTER IS FROM 1 P.M. TO 4 P.M. TO LOOK AT DOGS AND THE
      SHELTER CLOSES AT 4. THEY HAVE NO WEEK END HOURS AT ALL SO FOR PEOPLE
      WHO WORK IT IS DIFFICULT TO COME LOOK OR EVEN RECLAIM THEIR OWN
      ANIMALS. THIS PRACTICE MAKES NO SENSE WHATSOEVER.

      IF A RESCUE WANTS TO PULL A DOG OR CAT, THEY HAVE TO COME TO THE SHELTER TAKE
      A LOOK, CHOOSE WHAT THEY WANT AND THE "*TAKE A LOOK"* IS SUPERVISED BY A
      MEMBER OF THE SHELTER STAFF. NO ONE CAN WALK THROUGH THE SHELTER UNATTENDED. THE
      RESCUE THEN HAS TO CALL ONE OF THE TWO VETS THAT HAVE BEEN APPROVED TO DO
      SURGERIES IN GAFFNEY, THE SHELTER MANAGER TAKES THE ANIMAL TO ONE OF THOSE TWO
      VETS AND THE RESCUE PICKS UP THE DOG OR CAT AT THAT VET OFFICE WHEN IT IS READY.
      THESE TWO VETS CHARGE $75.00 FOR SURGERY, SHOTS AND HW TEST ONLY. ALL
      RESCUES KNOW THAT WE CAN GET MORE SERVICES DONE AT A LESSER PRICE MOST OF THE TIME
      SO THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, AT LEAST TO ME ANYWAY. BESIDE, I NEED TO SPEND MORE
      TIME WITH THE ANIMAL THAN A LOOK SEE TO JUDGE THE PERSONALITY ETC. BEFORE I
      KNOW IF IT SHOULD GO TO ADOPTION OR RESCUE ETC.

      *HOLLAND BELUE *THE INTERIM COUNTY ADMINISTRATOR HAS MADE THIS RULE
      BECAUSE HE IS ANGRY THAT THE ILLEGAL HEARTSTICK ISSUE WAS BROUGHT UP
      AND THEY GOT INTO TROUBLE. HE IS TRYING TO PUNISH RESCUES AS SEVERELY
      AS HE CAN FOR DISRUPTING THE "*GOOD OLE BOY BUBBA SYSTEM" *AND BRINGING TO
      LIGHT THE LESS EXPENSIVE, CRUEL PRACTICE OF EUTHANIZIA THAT THEY HAVE GOTTEN
      AWAY WITH FOR SO MANY YEARS.

      CHEROKEE COUNTY HAS BECOME A KILLING FIELD. IN THE LAST THREE YEARS SINCE I
      HAVE BEEN PULLING AND RESCUING FROM GAFFNEY, I HAD A 75% SAVE RATE, NOT THE
      *KILL* RATE IS THAT AND MORE. WHAT THEY WANT IS TO HAVE A COMPLETE KILL SHELTER
      AND I AM GOING TO DO EVERYTHING IN MY POWER TO NOT LET THAT HAPPEN. MANY OF
      YOU HAVE PULLED ANIMALS FROM CHEROKEE COUNTY SO PLEASE MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.

      THE PHONE NUMBER FOR CHEROKEE COUNTY ADMINISTRATION IS: 864 - 487- 2560 AND
      *HOLLAND BELUE* IS THE CULPRIT OF THIS TERRIBLE PRACTICE BEING PUT INTO PLACE.

      THE ADDRESS OF COUNTY ADMINISTRATION IS 210 N. LIMESTONE STREET, GAFFNEY,
      S.C. 29341. I DO NOT KNOW THEIR WEBSITE BUT, IF YOU GO TO CHEROKEE COUNTY S.C.
      IN GAFFNEY, S.C., I AM SURE YOU CAN FIND IT.

      PLEASE HELP ME STOP THIS!!!!!!!!!!!! MAKE YOUR OPINION KNOWN, WE CAN NOT LET
      THIS HAPPEN.

      THE PHONE NUMBER AT THE SHELTER IS: 864 - 487- 0161 AND THE SHELTER MANAGER
      IS MELISSA. LET ME ADD THOUGH, THESE ARE NOT MELISSAS RULES, SHE IS GOVERNED
      BY *HOLLAND BELUE* AND, HE IS DOING EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO TRY TO STOP
      ANYONE FROM SAVING ANIMALS IN THE GAFFNEY SHELTER.


      THE GAFFNEY, S.C. SHELTER IN CHEROKEE COUNTY HAS BECOME A KILLING
      FIELD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!IT MUST
      STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
