UPDATE ON UPSON COUNTY BANNING VOLUNTEERS!
- THINGS ARE GETTING WORSE!  HELP!!  
I contacted you yesterday about some unnerving behavior going on at Upson County Animal Control in Thomaston, GA where dogs that had rescue were getting killed anyway.  Apparently, when a few people went over the shelter manager's head, to the city manager, Jim Wheeless, to inquire why dogs that dog rescue were being euthanized, he banned the two main volunteers. 

I have also been notified that the "adopt a pet" site will no longer be updated with pictures of the countless souls that need adopting.  It almost sounds like punishment.  Many asked that you contact Randy Travis to do an investigation.  He replied and said he was swamped, and did not have the time to take this case on.  What is happening is absolutely INSANE, and should be illegal.  Maybe it is, I don't know.

I am asking that you reach out to some other local news resources.  Please take a moment to do this.  I am afraid that the county is all in bed with one another, and the only help will be the media. 
The dogs there are getting no exposure will be dying by the dozen!  Please do whatever you can!
