The shelter in Campbellsville is nothing but a miserable high kill abusive shelter run by an idiot and backed by the county judge. Neither like animals. They both need to be abused and suffer like the animals do. WAKE UP PEOPLE!! Do something about it.

I agree!!! Please make some phone calls to the judge exec., mayor, magistrates or the Kentucky Board of Veterinarians-who are investigating. Their phone number is five zero two-five six four-three two nine six--ext two three zero.

It truly amazes me what people do just to save time , money and work . These poor animals suffered because someone would not speak up before it was to late . I am happy that this man came forth and told what he saw happened , but where was his voice before these animals were killed ?
How many could have been saved ? I could not imagin letting anyone do this to any animal while I stood there and watched . Speak up people !!! It may or may not have helped , but atleast he would have been heard , and I for one if I was him would have never went back after the first killing . Surely if he stated they were killing these dogs and refuzed to work there anymore , someone could have investagated sooner . I think there is a special place in Heaven for dogs and animals . They have such pure hearts , and we treat them like maggots under our skin . I would hate to know I had to stand in front of God one day and try and explain why I done this to these animals . I hope these men find peace here on earth , cause I'm positive if they don't ask for forgiveness there afterlife will be the same hell he puts these poor animals through .

If this is false and they did not do these horrible things to these helpless and innocent dogs and cats then there should be no reason not to dig those dogs up and do an autopsy on them. Because if they were buried alive then there lungs will be filled with dirt.
I say we protest for there to be an autopsy done.

It will not surprise me one bit that this is true, that place was full of sick animals, They should have the same thing done to them! Animals have rights!! My dogs are like my kids go to the Marion County Animal shelter and have a look around then go to Taylor County and have a look! I have and that is why I adopt from Marion county where they care about the animals!! People are sick!!

God doesn't really address how to treat animals (beyond instructing Jews to kill/sacrafice them. God doesn't seem like an animal rights kind of guy. My guess is (based upon reading the Bible) that God wouldn't really question anything about the treatment of animals. It seems to me that you have created a God that fits your moral code rather than the other way around.

This not only affects Taylor County, Green and Adair Counties contracted to bring their unwanted animals to Taylor County. For a price, of course. Green and Adair need to demand an investigation as well.
I mean a full investigation, the books need to be audited, because a lot of money has been run through the animal shelter. Just sayin

I have read the the inmate was not there the day thee mass of animals was put down (or in some cases almost put down) is not really important, the problem is,this has been going on for a LONG time and finally a letter was written,that made its way to the right people!! All the other letters over the years was dismissed or shall I say buried, or when it was mailed became D.O.A. at time of receipt..I have been to the shelter before, the inmates do what they are told.(they have to) most if not all do a good job with the animals. Let's put the blame where it belongs,,,,The leadership,or lack there of.the shelter is a business AND a haven for animals and needs to be run as such. Come on you have to have a HEART to run the shelter the right way. It really tears me up inside to think about the whole thing..

according to the article, e.rogers produced a different letter by an inmate:

He produced a letter, which has also been handed over to the state, from another inmate at the detention center who did work release at the animal shelter. That inmate claims Andy Stewart wasn't at the shelter on April 7.

So we are supposed to believe "your" inmate over another inmate about something that happened in APRIL?

How about this mr. rogers......produce a record of where your inmates were officially placed that day instead of us depending on "your" inmate to tell us what should be documented by YOU to begin with.

Why were official time keeping documents not handed to the state instead of a letter from an inmate? Didn't have time to change the records that quick did ya? I'm sure you have by now though.
