Cary Lieberman and his Ops Manager Jaclyn Rudebeck are both aware that I offer training assistance and help to herding breed dogs. Recently they chose to kill a herding breed mix named Zander, in secret, not letting staff or volunteers say goodbye and also not reaching out to me, (or anyone else) to see if I could help Zander.
When I was at First Avenue volunteering, it was obvious to all of us that there was not enough staff to properly care for the animals. New volunteers would come and go. Even I noticed that in my short time there.
In my opinion, Greenhill management's personal feelings and their paranoid need for secrecy take first place over doing whatever they can to try to save a life. Lieberman & Rudebeck, along with Greenhill's vet, Gail Schroder and trainer Sandy Dain all need to go. Volunteering isn't such a great thing when you aren't treated with respect and when you're spied on all the time.
I made it only a few months as First Ave volunteer because I am not a good liar, and the truth is important to me. The truth must be spoken, especially when the lives of animals are at stake.
