Initial reports is 4.0, but that will most likely increase.

I can say the new facility is in no way sub-par. Go visit for yourself, see the beautiful paintings, clean easily cleanable floors, filtration from each individual litter box.
As for the question about who to force them to reveal...it is in the ohio revised code: http://codes.ohio.gov/orc/1717 which breaks it down in many ways. An interesting part in there is section 1717.15 which states a county can supplement any other donations, etc the AC would receive in this case. Didn't they just disband the country program and spread the funds among a bunch of other programs, including CLS? The Agent falls under city or county depending on how the county is setup to handle a society. What really angers me more...it only requires 20 hours training to be a so called humane agent. Um...WTH. Kimm is a Registered Vet Tech with the OVMLB and therefore had to obtain a degree to obtain her RVT...much more schooling than 20 hours. But the Agent is left with the decision to act?

Taseman, in defense of the Registered Vet Tech profession, I only wanted to state that the Vet Techs are under the direction and orders of whoever the Vet is. They have no option in the matter but to carry out whatever they are told to do. Also I have to wonder if they were the ones doing the euthanasia or if it was the Vet. Either can do it, but the RVT has to be under directions of a Vet. I don't know the current techs at AC, but I know of former employees who stated they always changed up decisions and nothing is ever handled the same way. Hmm.

Werecat, We're in total agreement with you! Our hearts ache with this entire thing, as I know your's and everyone else's also. I would love to know the rest are ok, but with Borosky at the healm, it sure seams like that's not the case. I'm glad the media was able to film immediately before they cleared the place out...it proves the animals were not sick and in pain...and therefore did not deserve to be murdered.

Yep, they don't follow any standard suggested procedures from other Humane agencies themselves. They didn't care because it sure seems pretty obvious we'll soon hear that the rest of the animals were euthanized. I mean he can't even do the math? 80 taken, 64 already euthanized = 16 should remain...not 29! People, there are no survivors...this line of lies doesn't add up and never will. Lies after lies by animal charity trying to protect their own screw up with this. They pack the animals in crates, steal carriers that belong to CLS to transport the animals...and have not returned them, and then tell tons of lies trying to cover their butt. They had no intent on keeping any of the animals, it was a war mission to seek and destroy...and they've accomplished murdering the animals. Now, they're trying to find a way to charge someone with no evidence...since they killed them and didn't let any other Vet in to see them...and only to again try to cover their rear with this screw up. animal charity is not a charity and is beyond the rules of the state humane acts...even the one that stands for 1862ish that hasn't been changed.

This is absurd. So basically they are now going to say the other remaining cats are also ill to CYA because they've probably already murdered them. The facilities at CLS are very well thought out and setup. There are no odors, and I wouldn't expect them with the new ventilation system. They do have a closed room with it's own ventilation for the ill animals. And just like all of the other rescues, they have a large area with plenty of play and climbing items in order for the cats to be happy until adopted. AFA does the same exact thing, but no one questions them putting animals in the same room. Also, why is it possible for them to injure an elderly volunteer and take her personal adopted cat from her. Borosky did that...just ask anyone that was there. I don't personally know anyone there besides stopping in on occasion, both at the old building and new one now that I know this has happened. I do however have many close friends and family that are RVT's in OH and everyone agrees this was ignorant and murdering these animals was to create a false case to cover their rears. They are all afraid to say anything pubicly because of possible retributions to their own employers! Now, why would they all feel that way if AC's enforcement program is truly impartial and fair?
