  • 1. The staff lies about the animals history and they are not to be trusted. Even the Director is corrupt

    by: DarrellWaddle

    JUST HEARD FROM A FRIEND OF MINE IN ZANESVILLE. THIS GUY IS SOMEONE THAT LOVES DOGS TO DEATH! ANY DOG WOULD BE LUCKY TO HAVE THIS MAN BE IT'S OWNER! A STAFF MEMBER AT THE ZANESVILLE ANIMAL SHELTER WAS CAUGHT BACKSTABBING MY FRIEND WHO WAS SEARCHING FOR A SPECIFIC DOG, AND MY FRIEND CALLED HER ON IT, AND THE SHE HAD TO LIE TO THE DIRECTOR TO COVER HER BUTT AND TO SAVE HER JOB. WHAT A BUNCH OF MORON, LOW LIFE LOSERS AT THIS PLACE! THEN THE DIRECTOR BY THE NAME OF LARRY HOSTETLER (UNPROFESSIONAL) TOOK HIS EMPLOYEES SIDE WITHOUT EVEN DISCUSSING IT WITH THE GUY THAT HAD THE ADOPTION ALL SET FOR THAT DAY. HE CALLED THE STAFF MEMBER AND TOLD HER WHAT SHE COULD DO WITH THE DOG! WHICH I WOULD HAVE DONE PHYSICALLY & PERSONALLY MYSELF. DO NOT TRUST ANYONE AT THE ZANESVILLE ANIMAL SHELTER. ESPECIALLY LARRY HOSTETLER AND ANY STAFF MEMBER. THEY LIE ABOUT THE ANIMALS HISTORY, AND THEN THEY WILL LIE TO COVER THEIR OWN BUTTS AT THE COST OF THE PEOPLE LOOKING TO ADOPT! THEY ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF LOSERS, LIERS, MORNS & IDIOTS THAT ARE UNPROFESSINAL THAT RUN THIS SHELTER THAT HAVE CONTROL OVER THE LIFE AND DEATH OF LITTLE SOULS OF CAT AND DOGS. WOULD YOU WANT THIS TYPE OF PEOPLE RUNNING THIS ANIMAL SHELTER IN YOUR AREA!? I WOULDN'T!. I FEEL SORRY FOR THOSE DOGS AND CATS! WITH THE BAD REPUTATION THAT THE ZANESVILLE ANIMAL SHELTER IS GETTING FROM WHAT I HEARD, THEY MAY AS WELL SHUT THIS PLACE DOWN. AND START OVER. FIRST FIRE THE DIRECTOR AND THE STAFF! THAT WOULD BE A GOOD PLACE TO START.

    Pros

    NONE

    Cons

    UNPROFESSIONAL, LIERS, BACKSTABBERS, MORONS THAT RUN THIS PLACE

    Niel & Jen work very hard as volunteers to get as many dogs adopted as well as to Rescues. Things could be better, but they could be a whole lot worse. Hopefully things improve in the future

    Pros

    Lots of nice dogs

    Cons

    Should have weekend hours
