THHS has lost its way. Despite multiple very successful fundraisers, the board claims there is no money for vetting animals - especially cats. Where is all of that money going? Best case scenario - into a fund for building a new building. Worst case scenario - use your imagination. Most recently they have begun euthanizing cats out of hand insted of letting them go out to rescues or into foster homes at the same time as they have just changed the rules to allow the city to bring in much larger numbers of cats than ever before. They have also cut off all funding for medications and vetting for cats. The commuity at large needs to step forward and demand that the cats get equal treatment with the dogs. Perhaps the HS's books need to be audited as well to findout where all the money from fundraisers is being spent. The board is now a closed clique - all new board members are approved by the president and her friends. And they put on only their friends. General membership no longer has a say-so in any HS policies. Good people are beign driven off the board by the hateful atmosphere and are afradi to stick up for each other at the meetings.
