Has taken many animals from facilities that were going to euthanize the dogs due to the fact they were deemed too aggressive for a natural home. When looked at more closely it was noticed that the guy in charge of OAS, Mr Markwell, was starving the animals in his care as well as not bathing them and giving them less than adequate housing. With the standards of care no better than what they had or worse than before, they have been starving and dying off one or more at a time.
This was brought to my attention when "Love a Pet" became aware of this situation... We are now looking into it and attempting to talk to the public officials where this man lives and held these poor animals captive. The public officials were notified on this issue when other animal care rescue facilities came into give Mr. Markwell some assistance in caring for these animals. When the animal rescue groups noticed that Mr. Markwell was not caring for them properly the Animal Rights organizations notified the public authorities, where they (the town authorities) then suggested that they were going to do nothing about it for one reason or another.
All we are asking is that the people in Port Angeles, WA be better stewards of those less fortunate that they are put in charge of and those of public office to be held accountable for their lack of action.
