Review for Jersey Animal Coalition Inc -Jac-, Maplewood, NJ, USA
Vacating premises after 80+ violations cited against Jersey Animal Coalition by the New Jersey State Health Dept and South Orange NJ Health Dept, including several animal cruelty citations. After years of mismanagement the animals have to be saved asap.
FINALLY CLOSED on 11/11. Village of South Orange takes over building. No animals left thanks to efforts of volunteers. 80+ violations issued in March by NJDOH and the President sues the Village of South Orange for picking on her!!! Dogs tied to fences, one strangles to death and is not found for over 1 hr. Shelter Manager was notified of this practice and did nothing. Two long term residents DIE in their cages during the period between March and Sept. while President is suing Village of SO??? Everyone will walk away w/o any charges being filed. Once again the animals lose, NJ laws need to be changed to better protect animals.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
To late to make changes The President and "her" Board Members refused to hear the complaints by the many "banned" volunteers. Banned because they were labeled "troublemakers" by the President and Shelter Manager for trying to improve conditions for the animals.
