Review for Humane Society Of The Pikes Peak Region, Colorado Spgs, CO, USA
What transpired this morning with the pet of the week by FOX21's Craig Coffey and Keley Likes from the HSPPR is ABSOLUTELY APPAULING!!! My family has been avid watchers of the show for years, but with this mornings blatant disrespect for a fellow human being and for the 2 of them to circumvent the system and use their status at FOX21 and the HSPPR to gain an unfair advantage, and lie to the public on air while planning the actions!
My mother is 73 years young and handicapped, she moved out here to be with family in March during the height of the pandemic leaving all of her friends behind to be as close to family as possible during these trying times and after. She has had 3 surgeries in 6 months and is finally doing great again and desperately wants a small dog to be her companion in life! This morning on the show between 8-9am, Keley Likes from the HSPPR had a small dog Samson on the show as the "pet of the week", it was broadcast for all to see and hear that he would be available this morning after 11am when the HSPPR opens for business. My mother was so taken by this dog that I brought her to the HSPPR and we were the 1st in line waiting for their doors to open at 9 am which meant we would wait nearly 2 hours outside. But for my mom and for the sweet sweet Samson it was worth it in her mind.
At just after 10am , Craig Coffey pulls up in his vehicle and walks directly to the closed doors of the HSPPR and phones Keley Likes who lets him in and completely ignores my elderly mother.....only to return about 15 minutes later when Craig Coffey walks out the door with the dog and when my mother attempted to speak to him about the absurdity of the situation....he merely mumbled "we fell in love with him" and hurriedly got in his car and took off!
This is a blatant abuse of his power and position at FOX21 and the same can be said of Keley Likes at the HSPPR! He or his family could have done what my mother rightfully did and beat feet to the HSPPR to be the 1st one in line! This act shows that his moral compass is nowhere near where it should be for one in such a public position. Shame on you Craig Coffey for using your power and position over the general public to get what you want at the expense of anyone you deem beneath you! Shame on you Keley Likes and the HSPPR for allowing this to occur, when there were clearly people waiting outside and you blatantly ignored all for the select few!!!
FOX21 still has the pet as available at 11AM on its website...Simply appalling!!!!!
I am a long time member of the uniformed services and know first hand that someone having no moral integrity cannot and should not be at the forefront of any organization!
