Jennifer Major Denicola and Tiffany Wilson both work as co-managers of the Stevens-Swan Humane Society. Jennifer just got arrested for stealing $1,200 dollars from her uncle. Tiffany got arrested over the summer for shoplifting.
The board chased away the former manager Deb Marshal because she kept a tight ship. As soon as they promoted Diane Broccli to Exective Director things have gone downhill. Dave Taurisano was also employed even after being forced off the SSHS board for his arrest and conviction of arson.
Maybe it is time for someone to look into this organization BEFORE Xmas donations start pouring in.

Interesting facts..... thank you for posting!!!
It seems that there are more than those people in question.... perhaps the community should take a look at the promotions end of things? kind of suspicious.....
sad. it could be a wonderful organization.....but stop in. it's pretty enlightening.

I used to volunteer at the Stevens-Swan Humane Society. I would walk the dogs so that they weren't "caged" in day after day. The individuals at the front dest spent more time outside smoking than taking care of people looking to adopt. I got so sick of there demeanor I have stopped going.
I agree, when Deb was in charge the place was clean, organized and workers were taking care of people seeking adoption.
Bring Deb back before the whole place goes to the "dogs". Mrs. Broccali spends more time at city hall and running her child around that she does at the shelter.
Why did they take away the right for the Director Diane Broccili to sign checks is the question. She must get a signature down at city hall now to cash anything.

Oh, sure. Punish the animals through not donating because of what the employees have done. They haven't stolen from the agency itself!

I was thinking the same thing Julie.
How about if people brought cans and bags of food instead of money. If an employee chooses to eat it oh well..lol! At least the money isn't being stolen and hopefully the animals will get the food. Or even volunteer to walk the animals instead of donating money. Please do not refuse to donate to these poor creatures, they didn't ask to be in the situation that they are in.

And you know they haven't stolen for the Humane society? I think an investigation is needed.
Smart thing to do is donate food/ cleaning supplies/ and toys...that way they don't have cold hard cash that can easily be taken.

it cant be that unbelieveable that they would steal $ donated if they would steal from thier own family!That takes a special person to do something like that.yes, i agree to donate food, blankets or what ever the animals needs are but $ now i have a different outlook.

It is very hard for any of the workers to steal funds; there are safe-guards in place.

Money is also needed above & beyond food, blankets, etc. just to pay the utilities & overhead. They CANNOT manage without it.

No safeguards...people come in and hand cold hard cash to these people.
The Director is also the bookkeeper. Can you say conflict of interest?
Deb Marshall where are you? The animals need you dearly, so does the donating public. Come back to the humane society!!!!

This is not something to laugh at. If there are problems there someone should take a look at it. Everyone thought the Association for the Blind was being run correctly. They are under investigation. Seems like many of these non-profits have their workers making a profit.
Investigation or audit should be done regardless.

SSHS does not receive funds from the county, state, etc., like other non-profits do. They rely solely on donations.

If the donations dry up, the agency will close. Then there will be no place for abused, neglected, abandoned or unwanted animals to go.

Would you rather see that happen???

Are you sure what that poster said is true? I don't believe it is.

Regardless, I wouldn't want to stop giving to them & then watch their eventual demise. Most donations are given in check/credit card form & there ARE safeguards in place. There's a series of checks & balances between administration & the board of directors.
