Hello everyone, it’s time for Mancat Monday and I want to thank each and every one of you for the quick action you took in contacting the humans listed in our Help Shut Down Best Friends Village post. Y’all really came through. Did we shut it down. No. Did you make a difference? Yes. Never ever underestimate the power we have via social media.
The County Health Department in Caldwell County responded and followed up with 2 unannounced inspections. All is much, much cleaner and everything seems to be in order. As we were starting this project we had reports of the owner of the property being there heading up a massive cleanup effort. They knew something was up. The two volunteers, now banned from the property, were, in their words, flabbergasted. Some of the areas shown in the report photos were places they had never seen due to all the clutter.
Now for the next challenge. We cannot permit this place to return to the shape it was in before. In a month I’ll remind everyone to email the Health Department contact and ask for an unannounced inspection. We need to do that each and every month. For those who got the email response from the Health Department, please reply and kindly thank them for their prompt attention to your concerns. That will likely go a long way.
Again, thanks everyone, ya done good! Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
