Go to their website, look at Board of Directors, ring a bell? read 'Our History'...make sense now? They are counting on the locals to keep their heads in the sand. Not this cowboy.

I'm pissed as heck about the Humane Society, but I just looked at their website and I don't have a clue what you're talking about. What do you mean "Board of Directors, ring a bell?" Or "read 'Our History'...make sense now?" What is the point you're trying to make?

Post a link. I can't find the website. I did google it, and all it comes up with is lots of generic pages.

It is the biggest scam in town. Bigger than all of that Convention center BS. Would love for someone to open up a true non profit and give them a run for their money. Someone who truly cares for the animals!

Needs to be shut down. No one should ever take an animal there! And the county should stop and find somewhere else to take dogs the warden picks up. This is pathetic and the entire place should be shut down!! I can't believe more cant be done. 4,000+ animals killed not under sedation. That's murder and way worst of a charge than that man got. He should be in jail just like people who dog fight and such

How are they non-profit (tax purposes) yet partially funded by tax dollars and even on webpage states that it is a private facility??? Private is private. Isn't this some kind of tax fraud issue? Looks like there is MUCH to investigate here.

Online article forwarded all over the country including NBC, CNN, FOX, and animal rights organizations.Disgusted by this place and the people behind it and that includes city mayor and county judge ex, commissioners, council members. Paducah is disgusting. No wonder so many problems here, its all about appearances. This most recent issue will really put Paducah on the map. Spin that.

According to their 2010 form 990 (Return of Organization exempt from income tax) shows $1,824,042.00 in net Assets /fund balance as of end of 2010, signed by Shirley Grimes. Thought their money was suppose to going to help the animals, and they cry they do not have any money. That is a lot of money for the NON PROFIT????? to be setting on.

So, what can we do about this? Complaints to city and county leaders fall on deaf ears. Look at all that has happened and has been in the news the entire past 2 years. What can we do? I read the shelter directors comments in today's paper. I thought the buck always stopped with an administrator. All she did was say 'We didn't know he wasn't doing his job.' Somebody please wake me up when this nightmare is over. What Can We Do?

Well if she doesn't know what her employees are doing she is not doing her job very as we all know, I would bet she didn't want to buy all that drug to sedate, more profit for shelter, what needs to happen is everyone does not need to donate to them, take anything to them or adopt from them, then if that happens what will be the final step,closure the City /County has already stop using them.Dalana lies and covers up for Shirley, she is part of the cause.

I agree, everyone needs to go and start anew for any kind of credibility. They all lie out there. Wonder what this man will say in his defense? He was told to do it that way, by who? And charge them.
