CONGRATS TO LOUISVILLE, KY FOR SLAMMING THE DOOR IN THE FACE OF "NO KILL"

Good news for sure is the rejection by the City of Louisville of the efforts of "No Kill Louisville" to take over their shelter.

""Mayor Greg Fischer said the bid by No Kill Louisville did not meet the city's criteria to operate the agency.
Fischer along with Community Building Director Sadiqa Reynolds said No Kill Louisville lacked the management experience necessary to operate the animal shelter, and that its bid asked for $1 million more than the proposed contract.""

Put Louisville in the "did not drink the koolaid" side and now we move on to the next one.

UPDATE:
Louisville is experiencing a distemper outbreak and need dogs to be adopted ASAP to prevent the spread and give them time to clean. Let's see if "No Kill" answers this call. It should be about the animals, we'll see.

UPDATE 2: Well, it appears that the shelter trying to move out the dogs doesn't meet with "No Kill"'s approval. What did I tell you, "No Kill" would not do their share to help these dogs come out of the shelter so they don't have to die from distemper. With "No Kill", it isn't the animals, it's their egos. http://www.whas11.com/news/local/Some-criticize-Metro-Animal-Services-for-adoption-special-on-heels-of-distemper-deaths-125032039.html


""But Jessica Reid with No Kill, an organization that is opposed to animal euthanization, says holding an adoption on the heels of the recent deaths, doesn't sound honest."" Sounds more honest that what you are pushing, Jessica.

i wonder why they need more money to deal with less dogs and cats?

must be all of those high maintenance pit bulls.

Yep, actually probably "rehabbing" all those pits will take that money.
