Someone sent me a blog where he is condemning someone else, Ardena Perry in Reno. This man knows no shame. So what that others don't see him in the same light (or dark) that he sees himself. I did a little investigating and here's what I found.
First of all, he is connecting Ms. Perry with Pat Dunaway and takes another shot at this woman. Who is she? A Houston reporter also refers to the ubiquitous Pat Dunaway in his lengthy article and Nathan Winograd's obsession with her. Later on that.
Seems Ms. Perry is a well respected member of her community, a valued volunteer with Animal Control. She is also an appointed member of one or two commissions. A Readers Digest article had Ms. Perry organizing her neighborhood to upkeep empty houses so as to maintain the integrity of the neighborhood. I don't see that his accusations make sense about this woman.
And as for Pat Dunaway, I can't find anything that supports his accusations. The County of San Bernardino does have their cases online and there are no listings, not even a traffic ticket, for Pat Dunaway. Also I learned that there was a court case filed stating all the cruelty that Winograd mentions Ms. Dunaway supports from the County of San Bernardino, not the City of San Bernardino as Mr. Winograd's link shows. The County of San Bernardino had the contract with Rancho Cucamonga, not the City. The court case was dismissed for lack of evidence.
Then I discovered that Ms. Dunaway has never been an employee and in any way associated with employment with the county or city as Mr. Winograd states. She is known only for her contributions to spay/neuter and rescue as far as animal control is concerned. I did find an old article still on a cockfighting forum written by the Press Enterprise that Ms. Dunaway was the inspiration for making cockfighting a felony in California. I have yet to see anything that supports Mr. Winograd's accusations of what she accuses him of. And I challenge him to produce that.
Best Friends filed a complaint stating the same things Mr. Winograd states about the cruelty at the Devore Shelter in San Bernardino County. Best Friends and the DA investigated these charges and found them false. Mr. Winograd's link on his posting leads right to the one who Best Friends has referred to as "cuckoo for cocoa puffs". So, Mr. Winograd, your own buddies are calling your accusations "cuckoo for cocoa puffs" in essence because you have taken your accusations from http://www.nokillnow.com/. Best Friends has called this site misleading and out of date, just like your accusations.
Now who is Nathan J. Winograd? He is someone who loves to take credit even when he isn't due any. According to Ed Boks, Winograd recommended him for the job. Mr. Winograd, you just bragged on Tara Darby, your hand picked manager for PACCA/Philly. What happened, Mr. Winograd? You put the blame on management yet you picked the management. And Rancho Cucamonga, CA bought into your program and I found two newspaper articles that show they are not claiming to be no kill because animals were being dumped on them because of it. I also saw their budget sky rocketing and no volunteers. This is online at the City web site.
How many animals have you handled in your "shelter" career, Mr. Winograd? Patricia J. Ruland discovered that you were only over the shelter in San Fran for a week and a half. Then your short tenure at Tompkins County handling about 3000 or so animal a year. You're no expert in shelter management with only 10,000 animals under your belt. I also see that you are trying hard to convince San Fran to declare no kill, I thought they were no kill if one listens to you.
You're just running scared, Mr. Winograd and you take your anger out on others. Show me where Ms. Dunaway says all those things about you, show me. I'm pretty good about research and I can't find them. I find two reporters that dispute your accusations in print, that's what I find. But these two women are at least in good company in that you have put them in the same catagory as HSUS and Peta, and not one of your Whinonettes. I consider you to be no more than a Wayne Pacelle wannabe anyway.
Who is Nathan J. Winograd? In my book, well, let's just say he is not one of my favorite people.
