I'm not meaning to insinuate anything here actually but you can read for yourself. Go Kathy!!
Remember a short while ago, Breeder Barnette made the mistake of firing the last of the "old regime", Kathy Davis? http://workingtohelpanimalstodaytomorrow.blogspot.com/2011/07/brenda-barnette-what-is-real-reason.html And when Kathy left, that was the last of those who could cover your ass for you. Big mistake, BB.
Now it appears it was an even bigger mistake than you realized. Kathy Davis has been hired by the Heigl Foundation as it's Executive Officer. CONGRATS KATHY!!

For Immediate Release August 2011
The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation Announcesthe Hiring of Kathy Davis as its Executive Director
Los Angeles, Calif. – The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation (Heigl Foundation), is announcing the hiring of Kathy Davis to serve as its Executive Director,effective Monday, September 5, 2011. “We are thrilled to have someone as experienced and compassionate as Kathy Davis join the foundation and are confident that her leadership, experience and tireless work ethic will guide our foundation toward meeting our ultimate goal of ending the needless suffering of companion pets and to serve as the voice of our compassion revolution.” (Katherine and Nancy Heigl). Ms. Davis has over 20 years of experience in animal care and control, most recently serving as the Assistant General Manager of Los Angeles Animal Services. She has been instrumental in developing and implementing various programs targeted at reducing the number of pets entering and subsequently euthanized at local shelters and placing particular attention toward the launch of low cost spay/neuter programs made available to residents in high need areas. Ms.Davis was instrumental in the successful launch of the “Apollo Initiative”, a program subsidized by the Heigl Foundation, which aims to offer free spay/neuter services to the general public from designated zip codes in an effort to decrease unwanted and accidental litters and increase awareness. “I am delighted to join the Heigl Foundation as itsExecutive Director and excited for the opportunity to expand the foundation’s existing programs and develop additional programs to continue to save the lives of companion pets throughout our cities and be on the forefront of finding a collective solution to the pet overpopulation crisis.” (Kathy Davis).
And the effects of Breeder Barnette's stupid mistake are already being felt. We've already seen the effect in emails and letters written by 7th grader Barnette. But this effect is even better. Here's is BB's announcement of the loss of spay/neuter funding by the Heigl Foundation on August 9th.
From: Brenda Barnette RE: HEIGL FOUNDATION
On August 9, 2011, we received the very unexpected news that the Heigl Foundation, after more than years of consistent dedication to and generous support of LAAS and its New Hope Partners, was no longer funding its valuable program which provided spay/neuter surgeries for animals adopted from LAAS by New Hope Partners. Without the Heigl Foundation contribution, the price for all New Hope Partners to rescue from LAAS shelters increased by $40 per animal.
Well, needless to say BB was bombarded for an explanation for this withdrawal. That means that the New Hope partners will need a little bit more change to rescue animals from the shelter. It also means that they probably won't be taking too many out anymore. Thus BB's numbers will really go down down the toilet, even more than they have been doing for the past year.
In Brenda Barnette's August 9th notification to New Hope Partners, she explained the reason for Heigl Foundation's decision this way:
“At this time, the JDHF Board has decided to change the focus of some of their philanthropic giving and they have discontinued their subsidies for New Hope Partners rescuing from Los Angeles City Shelters.”
That was BB's explanation for the loss of the Heigl Foundation's steady support to the tune of well over $1 million to LAAS. NOW, here is the explanation directly from the horse's mouth to your ears. This was sent to the rescues to clarify the "statement" made by Breeder Barnette.
We have received information of LA Animal Services' notice to New Hope partners of the Heigl Foundation's discontinuation of funding for the New Hope program. Unfortunately, the notice was misleading and failed to provide the appropriate context and relevant facts regarding the decision to suspend the subsidy for the near term. (A polite way of saying "Barnette, you lied!!) Despite our continued and tireless efforts to work cooperatively with the department in providing financial and strategic planning support various programs, LA Animal Services has been unable to reciprocate the same spirit of partnership and working collaboratively to address the challenges we face in our efforts to better the lives of animals in our cities. (More politeness saying "Barnette, you are a screw up and are screwing LAAS) We would like to assure you that the Heigl Foundation will continue to work with and support any department (including LA Animal Services) tasked with caring for the homeless pets of our cities if the leadership of such department is committed to the ultimate goal and takes actions that communicate that spirit of cooperation. Additionally, please have no doubt that the Heigl Foundation will continue to fully support the amazing efforts of reputable rescue organizations that work tirelessly to care for our homeless pets. We are excited to look forward to announcing various new programs and increased funding support for various existing programs in the coming months to help you in saving lives of animals at our municipal shelters and throughout our cities. We are honored to be your partner and will continue our dedication to support your efforts.
ARE YOU HAVING A BAD DAY, BARNETTE?? JUST SIT BACK AND HAVE ANOTHER GLASS OF WINE, OR TWO GLASSES, OR THREE. Besides you have assured yourself of a job by pimping out one of our shelters to the Best Fiends. Are you planning to join their little church as well? Maybe you are already a member. I'm sure they will offer you some comfort and maybe a little blood for that wine glass too.
