We have been saying this forever and now she is caught ad going to get" administrator" to fix records. She took them to be gassed so no one would know, if she took them to vet then people would talk. Can you say busted out and lying? She still has her job because she does what the city wants, kills animals and hides it. Going to be some record doctoring going on now.....can't stop those donations, but the truth is ow in black and white....she is an animal killer!

Hope the new prosecutor gets this info and shows his clout and determination to change the way things are done as he said he would campaigning. Make them accountable. I was present when she made a deal with a senath resident to dump dogs at pound for an under table donation althouth at the same time she was telling people in kennett the pound wasnt up to code. And KPD was daily saying she wasnt on duty but she still drew a paycheck. Can you say Department corruption. County is as bad as the city or worse with misworded statements to get warrants and some just outright lies.

This is the sad, hard truth of many no kill facilities. They will often, while not directly euthanize, will dump pets on other facilities when adoptions are down or they are too full. At some point people need to be educated. Spay and nueter your pets, support community spay and nueter programs. And if you plan on dumping your pet when it is no longer a cute little kitten or puppy please dont have pets. These are the worst of pet owners. I see cars come out of the city every weekend and dump their pets and speed off to leave the animal to fend for itself against coyotes who make quick meals of them

Actually claiming shes no kill and then sending to be euathanized makes her guilty as if she done it she done it herself. Meaning she misrepresented her department and covered up to solicit donations. Can you say ILLEGAL

Let me assure Kennett has never had a shelter. We have and will always have a pound. Tena has worked her tail off to keep from putting these animals down. She went to bat for these animals with the Council and the Mayors several times asking for more time than what is in the code for animal control to try and save and adopt out, before they had to be put down. I have a very hard time with this story, with the information about Kennett being a no kill shelter. The City of Kennett does not operate a no kill shelter. As I stated before we have a pound and a humane dept.

Tena has never presented it to me or anyone I know that way. Roger, you may be okay with it being a pound. But why is your friend Ace any different than any other animals that come through there?
You ride all around with him in your golf cart. Would you think it was okay to gas him and watch him suffer through the procedure?

Our problem is that she misrepresented what she is doing as an animal control officer. She doesn't want to adopt animals out to our community and she wants to send them to rescue groups. But it is okay to gas them? Why not adopt them? The state of Missouri doesn't even do that to people with the death penalty. If an animal needs to be put down for health reasons, take them to the vet to be euthanized humanely. That IS humane. I know because I have watched my very loved dog and cat who had cancer go that way with Dr. Mobley. If it is an issue of it costing more for the shot, people donate money ALL the time. I know certain people who are willing at any time to donate and ask if there are needs.

She has flat-out lied to me about how things are. As she has to other people in the community. She is evasive and won't answer direct questions. I am so completely disappointed in her and basically in you as well since you can't see the difference in Ace and other animals who are dependent on us to treat them humanely and in as caring manner as possible. If it is indeed a pound, then it needs to be presented that way so everyone knows not to contact the humane officer. As it has been, we thought we were helping the animals to find better homes. Not death.

looks as if all the donations are sent back to those who have donated to get the ( pound) shelter up to par, if t is indeed she is doing this, who is she getting her direct orders from? when the whole shelter talk was going on didn't they say they would be a no kill sheter? yes they did...
also, First hand knowledge that where my family live people are constantly dumping dogs off in my yard, I called the ( pound) shelter and am told that they are not accepting any animals but yet, when these animals get pregnt and more babies are being born then Im informed that we are hording animals .. so what would be thedifferece if to shoot these animals, it would actually be the same as what she is doing... killing animals. because she will not take them into the ( pound)
So I think maybe the ASPCA should get involved as well as the prosecutor and find out what the hell is gong on

A dog is just a stinking animal.No better than a pig snake or alligator.People make pets of those to.The dog population gets out of control at times.We cant let the dogs control the city.People are more important than animals.

It's the cats that are out of control in our city. Dropping litters by the dozens, tearing up property & scratching up vehicles!! She refuses to pick them when you call her.

Cats don't physically harm anyone.And they keep clean,bathing theirself daily.Its a lot of the dogs that carry rabies and bite people causing people to have to get a series of rabies shots and sometimes deah from the dog bite.Cats can be a nuisance but not considered to be a public health hazard.

I got a gator that wants to discuss this with you. Come on down. Give it your best shot but in close proximity so its a fair fight to see who the stinkin animal is after couple days. Make you a deal. I kiss the gator then you try it and we will let the gator pick the better people.
