Become a fan Stark relinquished his dog at a shelter when he was having a baby--a shelter I helped make No Kill and therefore kept alive a dog he abandoned. Now he is interested in scoring cheap points with a blog based on lies. In his recent blog, he blames me for things that happened after I left the Tompkins County NY SPCA. For example, he accused me of running a deficit by citing figures when I was no longer there. In fact, I inherited a deficit and closed it with surpluses. Moreover, he attacks me for what my predecessors did/didn't do, citing a 2009 period (five years after I left) when they temporarily housed cats in the laundry room. What does that have to do with me? And so what? They got food, water, shelter, socialization, and were eventually all adopted. Isn't that what we want--creativity short of killing? And why should cats from '01-'09 have been killed because like all shelters they got jammed in '09? Tompkins didn’t kill them, and Stark calls that failure, while other shelters do kill, and he calls that success. Most significantly, I have recently learned that Mike Stark was arrested for stalking someone at their home. That is very scary. For my personal safety and for the safety of my family, this will be my final post, nor will I engage him further. If people want to learn the truth, go to nathanwinograd.com and judge for yourself.
I guess he forgets that he admitted to a deficit to the Rancho Cucamonga City Council and explained it in his own terms. He kept saying he left Tompkins with a surplus but thanks to Pat Dunaway, the City Council learned differently and questioned him about it. Although the link provided is now off line, it is still a matter of public records and if you don't believe me, then request it and see for yourself. Be sure and check the response recently by the interim director after Winograd on the older post.
Liar, liar, pants on fire. Now I don't want to see anyone running up to the Whino with a fire extinguisher.
