Why does the organizations that saves hundreds of dogs in Wilson County is treated so hostile by the Sheriff who runs Animal Control? Why is the Sheriff so hostile when someone else is doing his job in the county and he is third highest paid sheriff in the state? 10 dead dogs in trash bags have been found in Wilson County and your public statement in today’s newspaper was not true and unethical. You blame the animal advocates that keep the shelter from being a mass slaughter if their efforts were removed….
Tootsie and Jasmine were saved from the Wilson County shelter and lived wonderful lives……Kim Edmondson was the reason for their second chance. She is an angel in Wilson County.
I met Kim Edmondson in 2013 and I was so impressed because w she has a full time career and incest her spare time saving dogs from the shelter and she has a vast network of fosters and rescues to accomplish this task. I did inquire why she was so committed to this cause. I do not care to share the answer because the newspaper in Wilson has the answer..
TEN DOGS FOUND DEAD IN TRASH BAGS AND SHERIFF BLAMES POLITICAL MOTIVATION AND MAKES STATEMENTS ABOUT ANIMAL ADVOCATES THAT ARE UNTRUE. ANIMAL CONTROL WAS CALLED IN FEBRUARY ABOUT THE FIRST DOGS FOUND IN THE COUNTY AND DID NOTHING BUT LEFT THE DOGS. KIM EDMONDSON TOOK THE DOGS TO HER VET AND CLAIMS OF WITHHOLDING INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE IS A LIE. THE ISSUE IS YOUR FAILURE IN YOUR JOB AND NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE PEOPLE BEHIND THIS EVENT BUT SHIFTING BLAME TO SAVE YOUR JOB.
Wilson Humane Society and For the Love of Dogs of Wilson are gifts to the county of Wilson, and the number of people in the community is amazing who foster, assist to reunite lost and found pets, etc. As a resident of another county, I have experience in working with our local animal control and our county is not perfect but they have made changes and are open to the community. Wilson County is the county and shelter that has a reputation of being the worst. The shelter would be one of the last to stop using the gas chamber in the state. The shelter staff was terminated in 2013 and leaving the shelter in chaos. Animal Cruelty case made the news a few years ago when For the Love of Dogs risked being arrested to save the dog from the freezing cold as the dog was close to death because Animal Control would not act to save the animal. This situation would not be tolerated in my county and our shelter would not treat the people who are advocates and rescues with such disrespect since they are taking their animals and saving them from death.
I know Kim Edmondson, and you should be ashamed to make statements about the people who do the job to save lives and take up the slack for the job that you are paid to do in the county. To all Wilson County residents, this elected official is not pursuing a potentially dangerous person because a person can harm this many dogs. They are capable to put humans in trash bags dead on the side of the road. This person knows the weak stance of animal enforcement under Sheriff Woodard because this is not happening anywhere else. Do you want someone like this person to be a leader in law enforcement? He blames politicization. It is called imcompetence.
