Maybe now the truth is begining to come out about this so called dog rescue center. Thank goodness the county decided to wash its hands from this mess. I for one am glad they cancelled the contract with ccpals, I am a dog and cat lover but what these people stood for was not the dog but how much money they can suck out of people. if one looks hard enoguh you can find the last 2 years tax returns on the net and see just what they claim! I was shocked. Then to hear these people are trying to intemidate county residents, well the scare tactics are something out of dumb novel and these are people who call themselves concerned citizens for Bandera, watch out your not losing control! People are begining to talk.

Apparently the Bandera Resident doesn't understand how to read a 990 tax return. Subtracting CCPAL's expenses for 2006 from its revenues leaves $4,586. Hardly an enormous profit. The following year,2007,the apparent profit was indeed greater, but the money came from three major grants & was earmarked for the purchase of a truck and an adoption/rescue trailer. The truck was bought in 2007 & the trailer in 2008,leaving a little over $7,000. This 'profit' went to pay for vaccines and food for the animals. The majority of the money CCPAL receives comes from donations,annuities,fundraisin g & grants.Only the money from the County came out of 'tax-payers' pockets. With the contract terminated what do you think will become of the strays? Are you, a proclaimed lover of cats & dogs, prepared to stand by while the County gasses them all? The money for that will certainly come out of tax-payers pockets, including yours. Since 2005, when CCPAL began managing the Animal Control Facility,it has rescued over 2,000 county animals.Can you give similar verifiable facts and figures to back up your insinuations that CCPAL is intimidating Bandera residents? Or are you content just to spread malicious rumours?

Bandera resident if you have any info why not share it with us. If not you should shut up.
Lets take the numbers of animals one step further and say CCPAL's adoption, return to owner, transfere to other shelter and breed rescue, CCPAL's rescue numbers are about 30% higher than the national average.
The Sheriff managed to kill approximately 90% of all animals they took in prior to CCPAL's contract to handle the County's animals they took in through Bandera's animal control. Some animals they shot and some they drowned and some were gassed to death. Before you decide to owner surrender your companion animal to the Sheriff's department understand the wholesale killing is set to begin again by merciless county killers.
There are two old bitter women who are spreading all these rumors with the help of a newspaper, none of which can be proven or taken seriously.
If you knew this group of people you would know every waking hour goes to feeding and cleaning at the center. The remaining time goes to adoption, fund raisers and rescue. They have no time left in the day to intimidate anyone and who would want to. On the other hand a woman from Medina has been threatening CCPAL on a regular basis.
Tell me Bandera Resident what have you done for the animals in Bandera County? Will you stand by and just watch as Bandera Kills 40-50 healthy animals every month and do nothing? CCPAL decided to step up and make a difference and they have done an amazing job for the lost, stray, abandoned and homeless animals and deserve a sincere thank you from all of us.
They certainly do not deserve the back stabbing insinuation, slanderous unfounded remarks from someone of such little charicater as you Bandera Resident. Let the good works of CCPAL stand as a reminder of what can be done when people have a heart and help those who can't help themselves.
SHAME ON YOU BANDERA RESIDENT

Shadow all you do is talk about the past the county did this or that in the past all the CCPAL did was rip off people who wanted to adopt an animal and trusted them to provide a service that was paid for but fact is fact animals were not fixed or given shots as were proclaimed by CCPAL. They continue to lie and spread lies. The county has not gassed any animals nor do they intend to, but as long as CCPALS keeps Roger Sullivan on board they will only fail. That man seems to taint everything he touches and every orginazation he involves himself. Marlene wake up and run like hell were on your heels.

Volunteer, the lavish trailer Marlene pulls around was purchased by a grant. No expense to her or CCPAL. One might ask how is it that you can borrow against that trailer when it was purchased by a grant. I was told it is against the law or at least somewhat fraudulent to put it up for collateral, and thats what she did to pay for her legal expenses. Non pro fit org. are suppose to make the paper work avaiable for anyone to see, but just go ahead and ask for it and see what she does or wont do. Ask why so many people have left CCPAL. when you start asking questions all of a sudden your services are no longer needed. IMAGINE THAT!

Bandera resident you sound like a dried up old woman I know who spreads lies like they are going out of style.
You don't know what you are talking about and it is a real shame you try to damage an organization that has done so much for the stray and abandoned animals of Bandera County which used to be gassed, drowned or shot.
I don't know why you continue spewing your lies, could it be your friend you live with helping you in some twisted vendetta?
Marlene Heavner is the best thing to come to the animals since animal control has been in Bandera.
Shame on you for trying to slander this woman and her organization.
Your attack is so transparent, talking about "the lavish trailer Marlene pulls around" shows how sick you really are. It belongs CCPAL.
Come out and volunteer and do something for the animals and quit your bitching.
PS I know who you are. Trust me on that one you hateful little toad.

All you did here ARBRK was slander and libel everyone with ccpal who was trying to take care of the county's dog and cat problem.
What is wrong with you anyway.
If you doubt the numbers here show us something else.
You can't LIAR.
