if u are on facebook u can see several shelters have a facebook page and do lots of work to try to get their animals adopted. no reason cville can't do this. someone can set up a page concerned ppl about the tc shelter. get the word out and get networked with other ppl who care about animals. you'd be surprised how many non-local ppl would join &possibly help.
contact some shelters who work hard & r dedicated like grayson co & bowling green-warren county & ask what suggest to get this shelter investigated & run properly.
contact wbko, maybe they would do a story. if they turn it down, try lex & lville tv stations.
write letters to the editor of the cknj, the courier journal & the lex herald leader. ppl all across the state read those papers & u might find someone who could help get an investigation going or how to go about it.
contact the aspca. they report on animal cruelty and inhumane conditions. spay/neuter, shelter adoptions and other pet issues get most of their attention whereas peta might be too focused on vegetarian and fur issues. still doesn't hurt to contact them though.
