Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Update (Thanks Randy Travis Fox-5)

http://www.boggshumaneshelter.com/spay_neuter/
Update:
Today (July 24, 2012), Randy Travis, I-Team Investigative Reporter, Fox-5 Atlanta,  reported that the employee that broke this story to him allegedly had informed the Board over a year ago as to what  was happening, and the Board chose to ignore her information. Allegedly, staged photos of Lucky Dogs and the Adopting family/person  were put on the Boggs Mountain  website (even though the dogs had been killed).  There is a  Rabun County Commission meeting tonite, June 24, 2012, about this Shelter, as  this Shelter receives tax money from the county of Rabun toward its operations.
Bloggers, keep  blogging.  Post to FaceBook.  Twitter this.
Again, thank you Randy Travis, Fox 5 Atlanta I-Team for exposing this tragedy.

Boggs Mountain Humane Society Killing Dogs-Part Two

Supposed no-kill animal shelter euthanizes pets – Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5.

Randy Travis, Atlanta Fox 5 TV, I-Team, has done a update to his report on the Boggs Mountain Humane Society Shelter–including the Drector  taking $500.00 from a man to place his dog in the Lucky Dog program, and then putting the dog down and informing him that his dog had been adopted out.  See the video at Fox 5 Atlanta.   There is a list of board of directors  and the veterinarians who assist at this shelter (not sure how current their web page is) on the Boggs Mountain Humane Society web pages:  Let them know how you feel.  As of this morning, Fox 5 reports the the Georgia Bureau of Investigation has now opened a file and looking into this, stating that they are looking into “Theft by Deception” and, “Animal Cruelty.”  Who else knew about the killing of these dogs–there has to be more people involved than this employee and the Director Peanut???

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Rabun County Georgia Killing Dogs

Investigation exposes humane society ‘Lucky Dog’ program – Atlanta

Boggs Mountain Humane Shelter Investigation Rabun County GA-Killing Dogs!!!

http://www.myfoxatlanta.com/story/19059474

 Fox 5 Atlanta I-Team Randy Travis exposed this–Thank him!

This was claimed to be a no-kill shelter. What these employees have been doing is disgusting and possibly illegal– if so, they should be prosecuted! Taking $100.00 from a donor to save a “Lucky Dog” and then euthenizing these dogs and telling the donors that the dog had been adopted or sent to another shelter!! Watch the Fox 5 Video. The Rabun County Sheriff and the District Attorney should review Georgia Code 16-8-3, “Theft by Deception” and, if applicable to the circumstances, prosecute the offenders.

ANOTHER ANIMAL CRUELTY CASE IN COBB COUNTY, GA

ANOTHER ANIMAL CRUELTY CASE IN COBB COUNTY GEORGIA
COBB COUNTY, Ga. — After miraculously surviving being stuffed in a burning oven, Melody, a 20-month-old pit bull mix puppy, is recovering smoothly. Gary Moore Jr., 25, of Cobb County, was charged with felony animal cruelty under a new statute in connection with the incident. Moore appeared in court and asked that his bond be reduced so he could be released from jail. Detective Steve Nolan testified in court that Moore confessed to putting Melody in a hot oven, saying the puppy had reminded him of an estranged boyfriend. “Their relationship was not going forward and at that point he grabbed the dog, placed it in the oven, closed the door and held the oven door shut for a period of a few seconds.”
Moore told the detective he released Melody when she began howling, but did not seek medical treatment for her. His roommate took her in four days later. Judge Frank Cox granted Moore a lower bond under the condition that he move in with his mother, and not live near any animals. So Moore got his bond lowered and bonded out.
If I, Tuck The Law Dog, was the Judge, I never would have lowered Moore’s bond–he doesn’t deserve freedom–he deserves to be put in a hot oven, let out, and refused medical treatment! Please, please email the District Attorney, Cobb County, Georgia; the Solicitor General of Cobb County, Georgia, letting them know you are keeping an eye on this case and to make sure this 25-year old poor excuse for a human being, if found guilty, gets the maximum punishment.
I feel so much pain and hurt for little Melody–I wish you a speedy recovery, my friend.
**Moore has not been found guilty nor convicted of any crime at this time, and has only been charged.
