Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter- Update

Supposed no-kill animal shelter euthanizes pets – Atlanta News| FOX 5.

Randy Travis, Atlanta Fox 5 TV, I-Team, has done a update to his report on the Boggs Mountain Humane Society Shelter–including the Director taking $500.00 from a man to place his dog in the Lucky Dog program, and then putting the dog down and informing him that his dog had been adopted out. See the video at Fox 5 Atlanta. There is a list of board of directors and the veterinarians who assist at this shelter (not sure how current their web page is) on the Boggs Mountain Humane Society web pages: Let them know how you feel. As of this morning, Fox 5 reports the the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has now opened a file and looking into this, stating that they are looking into “Theft by Deception” and, “Animal Cruelty.” Who else knew about the killing of these dogs–there has to be more people involved than this employee and the Director Peanut ???
Update:  Today (July 24, 2012), Randy Travis reported that the employee that broke this story to him had informed the  Board over a year ago as to what was happening, and allegedly the Board chose to ignore her information.  There is a Rabun County Commission meeting tonite, June 24, 2012, about this Shelter, as this Shelter receives tax money toward its operations.
Bloggers, keep blogging.  Post to FaceBook.  Twitter this.
Again, thank you Randy Travis, Fox 5 Atlanta I-Team for exposing this tragedy.

  1. Hello Tuck! Hope you continue to sniff out the activity and hound hunt the mean director of the Boggs Mountain helter/skelter shelter. Keep us posted on Fox 5 followup stories. I wish the public had a way to contact and support the whistle-blower. Sounds like she also has a case for harassment.

  2. Thanks for following me, Tuck the Law Dog. The investigation is now in the hands of the GBI. Fox 5 Atlanta I-Team interviewed a woman at the rally on Saturday who stated that she had paperwork from Boggs showing the dog she adopted had been given a distemper shot-but apparently her own veterinarian informed her the dog had never had this vaccination. How very disturbing.
