The Guilford County Animal Shelter has had a second high-profile resignation in two weeks: Nancy Fauser, the outreach and volunteer coordinator for the shelter, turned in her resignation on Saturday, June 29.
That announcement comes on the heels of a Thursday, June 20, highly public resignation by former Guilford County Animal Shelter Manager Darryl Kosciak, who announced at a jam-packed county commissioners meeting that he was stepping down. Kosciak, who took the podium in the public forum to make his announcement, told the commissioners he was resigning due to a lack of adequate staffing at the shelter.
Fauser, who also has played a central role in shelter operations, did not state publicly her reason for leaving but her decision was a second blow for an animal shelter that has been moving forward under Animal Services Director Jorge Ortega.
Fauser praised her co-workers in a written statement she sent to them.
“Please know that I believe in all of you and the generous, generouscontribution you make of your time and love for the animals at GCAS [Guilford County Animal Shelter]. If you weren’t here it would be a far more dismal place and the animals would suffer greatly from the lack of your presence.”
Fauser wrote that she admired and respected her coworkers and she thanked each of them for their work at the shelter.
Fauser’s last day will be on Saturday, July 13.
The County Commissioners have not justified why the shelter plans significantly reduced the capacity for Hope Filled Dogs and Cats to be housed before being placed in their forever Homes. They have plenty of money for nonsense, but come up short for animals who give us their all. You can always judge people by how they treat animals.
It is obvious that these resignations are a silent protest against the heartless neglect of so called Commissioners.
By the way, I fully expect this message to be censored by the Rhino Times.
I’ve been to the shelter, looking for a pet. All you have to do is go out there, and you will see the cause of the discontent.
Is is a management failure?
Guilford County Commissioners don’t give a DAMN about those Precious animals that have NO choice but to have to go to a Freaking KILL SHELTER & wait their time scared to death & if nobody adopts them they are EUTHANIZED by the Thousands especially the Cats…..sorta like a Concentration Camp, they go in but too many of them are killed because of not Enough Staffing & certain employees that don’t give a damn the same as the Commissioners that could care less & many other problems too numerous to mention so if you live in Guilford Country & DROP OFF a Pet that you’ve had for Years just because he/she is old now & you want a Younger Dog or Cat then you’re a POS because even you know the Dog/Cat you DROP OFF stands a good chance of being DEAD within a week or less…..Damn Humans are the Worse Living Species on God’s green earth…..
who are you mad at?
