It's sad to think that the Nicholas County "Good Ole Boys" system of politics is still in existence. Several of the employees at the Animal Shelter are rude, obnoxious and overbearing. They will do anything to get out of doing their jobs. Sad thing is they all got their jobs through their political connects, not because of their qualifications.

We as taxpayers in this county should demand and get a better quality of employees working in this faculity. Most of the employees refuse to do the jobs their hired to do, especially the dog catchers. I know for a fact one spends most of his spare time at Jackson's Meat Shop playing the quarter machines with the boys that hang out there, while the county vechicle set in the parking lot.

They both go out the road where I live 3 or 4 times a week. It's 7 miles to the county line and only a handful of people live on this road, so how many dogs are they catching? Just a thought...

There are some serious problems at the Animal Shelter that the County Commission needs to check into and deal with, even if it means firing or demoting some of the employees.

Another issue is that keeping accurate records of the incoming funds into the shelter. In the past some employees have been known to dip into the county funds, prior to turning the money into the county officials at the courthouse. This is not only fraud, it's a felony.

I totally agree! I think they need to clean the house and fire all the workers there. They are SO LAZY! It takes heart to work in a place like that and work ethics, which clearly they do not have nor ever will.

I agree the male employee dog catcher is truely a jerk. Very mean to the animals. When the animals are scared and won't come out of there wire came so he can clean it, he sprays them with the water hose. even on the cold winter days. I would love to see him get canned!

There should be an investigation. No more community service workers at the shelter until something is done.

If this is really going on the animals should be transferred until something can be done about the employees! This is appauling!! It completely baffles me how a human being can treat an innocent animal like they're just garbage...

Paul Williams, one of the dog catcher's spends most of his free time playing the quarter machines in the building where Jackson's Meat Shop is located on County time. The county vechile is sitting out in their parking lot. That's a good use of our county money. He and the other guy, Larry Overton were hired by Tom Blankenship. Enough said...

I thought Mr Jackson is a Christian. Why are their quarter machines at the shop?

Sad, they told me the same thing a few years back when I ask if I could volunteer... Those dogs aren't walked (or atleast weren't whenever I'd stop in) everyday. It's very sad for the animals. Their lives are already miserable enough. Many of them won't make it out of the shelter. They should atleast be loved and well taken care of until the day they're adopted or euthanized.

we have to do something as a community. I too have been down there several times and was blown away by the laziness and heartless people who work there. they get paid well to do a good job, but they go as far as to smoke in the building and refuse to get off their butts and work. I am ashamed of this community and ashamed of myself for not speaking up.

We need to flood the County Commission with letters regarding the abuse and neglect we've witnessed. It will provide proof that numerous citizens in the county have had negative experiences with the employees there.

You may be able to file a complaint with a DNR officer or take it to a state level in Charleston, and possibly talk to Brian Sparks, he has connections with animals and agriculture etc.

Start contacting people.
It will make a difference for animals that are suffering enough.

Here are 3 websites for the Humane Society and the ASPCA. We should also contact these people in addition to the County Commission with our first-hand accounts of abuse and neglect. Every county receives some monies from the Humane Society. I think they'd be very interested to know what's going on at the Nicholas County Animal Shelter.

When you work with the dumbass public, the first thing you learn from your boss is that the DUMBASS standing in front of you is always right. Whether they be customers, clients, whatever. Your statement shows you have no regard for anyone, much less the customers you serve at the Animal Shelter. If you can't show any respect to the customers, how can you have any respect for the animals you care for, or for that matter yourself???

look.. i worked/volunteered there for a bit. so i personally do not appreciate the over all consensus of " all the workers being lazy && rude" .. i worked hard && cared for every adorable lil fuzz ball that straggled in..
--you dont understand how hard it is to get attached to these animals.. because they come & go no matter what..whether the get adopted, put down, sick, run away, taken away on rescue..... im not taking up for anyone.. && im not calling anyone here wrong.. but you should understand that .. i personally know the pain of getting attached...:(
-- one point.. there are cameras all over that joint.. if an animal HAD been done wrong it would be recorded.. im sure the tape is only kept for x amount of time.. but just keep that in mind when/if anyone decides to do anyhing..
